    Answer:

      72 +13n = 163

      7 nights

    Step-by-step explanation:

    At 13 pages per night, Mario will read 13n pages in n nights. That plus the pages already read will total 163:

      equation: 13n +72 = 163

    __

    To solve this, we can subtract 72, then divide by the coefficient of n.

      13n = 91 . . . . . . subtract 72 from both sides

      n = 7 . . . . . . . . divide both sides by n

    Mario read 7 nights.
