Walk The Talk!

Algebra Level 3

My flight was delayed and getting bored, I conducted an experiment with the moving walkway at the airport and my stopwatch.

I started walking on the moving walkway at a constant speed, and discovered that it took me exactly 162 seconds to go from one end to the other.

Next I started to walk against the moving walkway (the wrong way) at the same constant speed and found that it took me five times as long to go from one end to the other.

Now here is the query--

If I stood still on the moving walkway, how many seconds would it take me to go from one end to the other?
