Andy and Marcus each bought the same storybook and both of them started reading their books on the same day. Marcus read 3 fewer pages than Andy each day. Marcus took 80 days to finish his storybook while Andy took 30 days fewer than him. Find the number of pages in the storybook.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Marcus => 80(x - 3)               Andy => 30x

 

80(x - 3) = 30x

 

x = 4.8       (The number of pages Andy read each day.)

 

Number of pages in a book=>   4.8 * 30 = 144
