  1. Monday 1/3 read means 2/3 unread

    Tuesday reads 3/10 of 2/3

    He has 1/5 of the book left = 35

    multiply 5 times 35 to get your answer.

  2. oops - 3/10 of 2/3 = 2/10 = 1/5
    1/3 + 1/5 = 8/15
    so, 7/15 x = 35
    x = 75

    check:
    on Monday read 1/3, or 25 pages, leaving 50 unread
    On Tuesday read 3/10 of 50 = 15 pages, leaving 35 unread

  4. THE ANSWER IS 75
    1/3 of 75=25
    75-25=50
    50+25=75
