Question
Angie read 2 books in 5 days, and each book contained 340 pages. If Angie read the same number of pages each day, how many pages did she read per day?

Answer
Hello, Anna.

The first step is to figure out the total number of pages that Anna read. 340+340 = 680 total pages read.

Since she read the books in 5 days, you need to divide 680 by 5 to figure out the number of pages that she read, on average, each day.

680/5 equals 136.

Answer: 136 pages per day.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
John
