By the end of her first day of reading, Emily had read 1/4 of her book. By the end of the second day, she had read another 29 pages. There are 136 pages in the book. How many pages did she have to read after the second day to finish the book?

So in total she read $\frac{1}{4}*136+29=34+29=63$.

She has $136-63=\boxed{73}$ pages left to read

Hey there, Guest!

Two equations can solve this problem for us here.

$$\frac{136}{4}=34$$

$$136 - 34 - 29 =\left [ 73\right ]$$
