Translations

If I going to translate the book 6 pages per day I translate it 4 days earlier than if I translated 5 pages a day. If I translate 4 pages a day I translate it for how many days.....?

Result

x =  30

Solution:


s/5 = s/6+4
x = s/4

s = 120
s-4x = 0

s = 120
x = 30

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
