    Re: Longitude, zone time, and local mean time

    In my book, having the right answer is about 1/4 of the problem.  Knowing
    how/why is the other 75%.  I've seen any number of exams where he answer
    was correct and the derivation was ridiculous.  I always like to derive
    the answer using mte most basic calculations (so I don't have to carry
    much "baggage").
