6th grade was tough; I remember it well lol. This one is simple, but it takes a bit of brain power to really wrap around your mind.

Count by nines for a while. Make a chart that goes up to... Let's say, 10.

9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81 90.
Now, count by 15.
15, 30, 45, 60, 85, 90, 105, We don't need to go farther.

Now, find the smallest number that shows up in both of the multiplication lines.
As you can see, the answer is 45. So, every 45 minutes, the buses will leave together. 1:25 PM plus 45 minutes equals 2:10.
