I worked this out by saying that 1 hour later he gets up on
Thursday; 2 hours later he goes to school on Thursday; 3 hours
later he has lunch on Thursday; 4 hours later, he plays on
Thursday; 5 hours later he has dinner on Thursday; 6 hours later he
goes to sleep on Thursday; 7 hours later he gets up on Friday; 8
hours later he goes to school on Friday and 9 hours later he
finishes school, and is about to have lunch.
Well done both of you.
