    1:40 am the next day

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1 pound = 16 oz

    The block of ice melts 1 pound or 16 oz in 10 minutes

    10 x 250 = 2,500

    It will take 2,500 minutes to melt completely.

    2,500 divided by 60 = 41.66666 or 41 hours and 40 minutes

    60 minutes = 1 hour

    1 day = 24 hours 41.6666666 - 24 = 17.6666666

    8 am + 17 hours and 40 minutes = 1:40 am the next day
