  3. sure

    she reads 30 pages of the book and she reads for 3 days, so 30 x 3 = 90

    5/8 of the book are left, so she read 3/8 of the book. which means 3/8 of the book = 90 pages

    you can use x as the length of the book, so 3/8(x) = 90

    multiply both sides by 8/3:
    x = 240

    so there are 240 pages in the book
