2/How many books would Raul have to buy if he wanted to have 10 books on each self, no matter what the subject?
Answer: don't understand

  • Math -

    10 books * 9 shelves = 90 books
    He already has more than that.

    Now, if he wanted 10 books for each subject on each shelf, then he'd need to have 90 books for each subject.

    So, he'd need to buy

    90-72 = 18 History books
    and so on for each subject

    Then add up the results for all the books
