A-58.

Sam read 75 pages of a new mystery novel in 2 hours. If the book contains 350 pages and he always reads at the same rate, how long will it take him to read the entire novel? Homework Help ✎

Set up a proportion, with x as the amount of time it will take to read the whole book.

$\frac{75\text{ pages}}{2\text{ hours}}=\frac{350\text{ pages}}{x\text{ hours}}$
