Sample Problem

Tim read 42 pages of a 210-page book in 6 days. If he read the same number of pages per day and, how many more days would he take to finish reading the book?

  days

Solution

The rate: 42 ÷ 6 = 7 pages/day

The remaining pages: 210 – 42 = 168

Thus, the time needed for the remaining pages: 168 ÷ 7 = 24
