The second book in a fantasy series is 112 pages longer than the first book. the total number of pages in both books is 524. Solve the equation b+b+112=524 to find the total number of pages b in the second book.

b + b + 112  = 524

 

2b + 112  = 524    subtract 112 from each side

 

2b =   412         divide both sides by 2

 

b = 206

 

The second book has   206 + 112   =  318 pages
