Two hosts are connected via a packet switch with $10^7$ bits per second links. Each link has a propagation delay of $20$ microseconds. The switch begins forwarding a packet $35$ microseconds after it receives the same. If $10000$ bits of data are to be ... time elapsed between the transmission of the first bit of data and the reception of the last bit of the data in microseconds is ______.
