How many pages he has bot read?

Estimate how many days it will take Peter to finish the book if he reads about 8 pages per day.

I'm confused. I need help.

**Sarah**, Thursday, November 1, 2007 at 8:54pmI estimate it would take him 9 and 3/8 days to finish the book at that rate:)

hope it helps

**Reiny**, Thursday, November 1, 2007 at 11:42pmLet the number of pages he has read be x

then the number of pages not read is 103-x

"He has read three pages more than one fourth of the number of pages he hasn't yet read." -----> x-3 = 1/4(103-x)

4x-12 = 103-x

5x = 115

x = 23

He has read 23 pages.

103/8 = 12.875

So estimate it would take 13 days to read the books from the beginning.
