3. I have the same question for my homework. I am solving it now so i hope this helps you.
First of all, George has already read 3 chapters of a 27 chapter book. On the second night, he read 8/27 of the book. In order to make 3/27, which came from the amount of chapters George read the first night, into 8/27 we can subtract 3/27 from 8/27. The final answer would be 5/27. Therefore, George read 5/27 of the book on the second night.
Thats my answer. I hope this helped you!
