you called number of pages he read on second day = P That's OK. But According to your formula P + .20P = 60 If I define it so than (no. of pages on second day) + (20% of no. of pages on second day) = 60 Which is wrong!!!!! because as in question no. of pages on second day are 20% less than 1st day. The formula should be P + .20*60 = 60 P + 12 = 60 P = 48
