Book reading

If we read the book at a speed of 15 pages a day, we read it 3 days before we read it at a speed of 10 pages per day. If I read at 6 pages per day, how many days will I read the book?


x =  15 d


 n/15=n/103  n=90  n=90  x=n/6=90/6=15 d \ \\ n/15=n/10 - 3 \ \\ \ \\ n=90 \ \\ \ \\ n=90 \ \\ \ \\ x=n/6=90/6=15 \ \text{d}

Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
