This question is a two part question, so let's start solving the first part.

First, let's find 2/3 of the book that is 30 pages long. This isn't too hard to find:

**2/3 * 30 = 20**

Now that we know he read 20 pages, we know that there are 10 pages left to read. Because Clay read 1/2 of the remainder of the book on Wednesday, we know that he read five pages.

Now we can add 20 and 5 to get 25 pages. This is the number of pages that Clay has read.

So, we know that the answer is equal to:

**30 - 25 = 5**

**So, he has 5 pages left to read.**
