Three monks

Three medieval monks has task to copy 600 pages of the Bible. One rewrites in three days 1 page, second in 2 days 3 pages and a third in 4 days 2 sides. Calculate for how many days and what day the monks will have copied whole Bible when they begin Wednesday and Sundays has dedicated exclusively to pray and meditation.

Result

n =  301
x =  3

Solution:

n=600/(1/3+3/2+2/4) 7/6+1=301n=600/(1/3+3/2+2/4) \cdot \ 7/6+1=301
301/7=43=>x=3301/7 = 43 => x= 3
