1130

We need to calculate the time difference in seconds: 10:45:22-02:54:57,
if we add 00:05:03 to both it will look as 10:50:25-03:00:00=07:50:25 => in seconds it will be equal to 7*60*60+50*60+25=28225
after the first tremor there happened 28225/25=1129 more tremors so total number is 1129+1=1130 answer Oct 3, 2018
