Shakespeare's book is numbered 1-300 with 150 pages. Claudius is lazy and does not want to read his book assignment. He starts with the page numbered "1", and skips 2 and reads 3. He keeps skipping every other number until he finishes the book. How many pages did he turn? (If he read the page labeled "1" and he skips to page 3. He turned 1 page.)

 

I made this problem for a test I created in my school. We have a special club in our school, and the only way you get in is to pass the test. My clubmates assigned me to make the test for the club, and now I don't know how to solve one of my own problems XD.

 

Can someone help me solve this.......

 

I thought I could do 300/3 = 100

 

Then 150 - 100 = 50. But Im not sure...

 

 

 

You can't search it up because I obviously created it...

Turns 149 pages?  You have to turn every page except the last one.
