The Voyage of the Mako (Posted on 2011-04-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5

The space freighter ‘Mako’ trades out of Antares. It travels at constant speed through hyperspace and its route is as follows:

Antares-Alniyat ...........7 days
Alniyat- β Normae .......4 days
β Normae-1 Scorpii .....8 days
1 Scorpii-Antares ........5 days
Antares- π Scorpii .......7 days
π Scorpii-1 Scorpii.......3 days
1 Scorpii-Alniyat .........5 days
Alniyat-Dschubba ........3 days
Dschubba-Akrab .........6 days
Akrab-π Scorpii ..........4 days
π Scorpii- β Normae .....6 days
(Parts of days ignored throughout)

How many days would it take the ‘Mako’ to travel back home from β Normae to Antares?

Well, I don't think I have any further calculations that I can think of doing, so, now that you've stated that these are rounded figures rather than truncated ones, I'll just go with the 10 days that seem to be closest to what I calculated previously, where I had previously worried that it might truncate to 9.
