Four classmates are comparing the number of pages that they have read in a novel assigned for their language-arts class. Ken has read twice as many pages as Jenny. Alicia has read 18 pages more than Jenny and 11 pages more than Mark. Mark has read 38 pages. How many pages has each of the students read? Identify what you need to find out and plan how you will solve the problem. Show your work. Explain your answer.

1. Henry

Jenny = X Pages.
Ken = 2x
Alicia = x+18 = 38+11 = 49.
Mark = 38.

x+18 = 49
X = 49-18 = 31.
2x = 62.
