First he walked from A to B taking 120 steps in each minute then he turned back at B and went back to A taking 90 steps in each minute. He turned back at A and went to B again and took 60 steps per minute, and finally he turned back at B and stepped only 45 in one minute until he got back to A. It took him 1 hour and 3 minutes.
