During the school holidays, Chris read 312 pages of a book at first. He read the remaining pages in 20 days, with the same number of pages each day. During these 20 days, he read 1/12 of the book in 6 days. How many pages did he read in the 6 days?

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

The book has 312 + x pages

6 : 1/12 = 20 : x **x = 5/18 (x => pages read in 20 days)**

**13/18 = 312 pages**

**y : 1/12 = 312 : 13/18 (y => pages read in 6 days)**

**y = 36 **

**Chris read 36 pages in 6 days, 120 pages in 20 days, and the book has 432 pages.**
