The book

If one day you read p pages, you will read the book 24 days. If you read each day 10 pages more, you would read a book in 16 days.
How many pages have the book?

Correct answer:

n =  480

Step-by-step explanation:


24p=n
(p+10)•16=n


24•p=n
(p+10)•16=n

n-24p = 0
n-16p = 160

n = 480
p = 20
