a) how thick would a 600 page book be?
b) if total thickness it to be under 48 mm, what is the largest number of pages that can be in the book?
c) give an equation relating n to T

    You have the thickness of the two covers (6mm) with an additional Nmm for every 25 pages.

    T = 6mm + Nmm/25

    With the formula, you should be able to answer the other two questions.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
