Question

Tyrone read a book for his school project. On the first day, he read 40 pages. On the second day, he read 1 4 of the remaining pages. After the second day, he still had to read 1 2 of the total number of pages to complete the book. How many pages are there in the book?

70 pages. (If by 1 4 and 1 2, you mean fractions.)
Step-by-step explanation:
1/4 of 40 is 10. This is calculated by dividing 40 by 4, since the denominator in 1/4 is 4.
1/2 of 40 is 20. This is calculated by dividing 40 by 2, since the denominator in 1/2 is 2.
Add that together and that’s 70.
