Aaron reads 3 times faster than Shad and Patrick reads 4 times faster than Aaron. If Patrick reads 4 pages in 1 hour, how many pages reads each of his two comrades?
Oh dear, no wonder we were not agreeing. So let's recap the problem
This is still in a muddle. When you first made this post, you had Shad and Patrick the other way round in your answer. Last night you edited the post, swapping the names over. So your answer still doesn't match the problem as stated.
Omg, I just saw the error. I didn't write correctly the problem.. Aaron reads 3 times faster then shad and patrick reads 4 times faster then Aaron.
If Aaron reads faster then Patrick is the slowest reader.
Ok, but I under the logic behind that one persone is slower than an other but your answers are wrong and This I what I got :
How come ? I got the answer perfectly with them ...
Sorry, I confused the names, thanks for the correction. But what I'm asking is X represent the number of pages read by Patrick, right ?
Hi Al-Allo. Your equations are wrong. They should be as follows
Aaron reads 3 times faster than Patrick and Shad reads 4 times faster than Aaron. If Patrick reads 4 pages in 1 hour, how many pages reads each of his two comrades? I know how to resolve the problem, but I just wanna be sure I resolved it in the right way.
