*Ferrari S.p.A. is an Italian sports car manufacturer based in Maranello, Italy. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1928 as Scuderia Ferrari, the company sponsored drivers and manufactured race cars before moving into production of street-legal vehicles in 1947 as Ferrari S.p.A.. Throughout its history, the company has been noted for its continued participation in racing, especially in Formula One, where it has enjoyed great success. Rohit once bought a Ferrari. It could go 2 times as fast as Mohit's old Mercedes. If the speed of Mohit's Mercedes is 32 km/hr and the distance travelled by the Ferrari is 952 km, find the total time taken in hours for Rohit to drive that distance.*

*Fermat’s Last Theorem is a statement in number theory which states that it is impossible to separate any power higher than the second into two like powers, or, more precisely- If an integer n is greater than 2, then the equation a^n b^n = c^n has no solutions in non-zero integers a, b, and c. Now, if the difference of any two numbers is 9 and their product is 17, what is the sum of their squares?*
