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.
