# Billy needs to read 500 minutes this week for his English class. He is going to read 6 days. If he already reads 15 minutes every day, how many additional minutes does he need each day to read at least 500 minutes?

$68. \overline{3}$

#### Explanation:

Firstly, you need to work out how many minutes he is already reading for; in this case, you do $15$ multiplied by $6$ which is

$15 \times 6 = 90$

Then to work out how many minutes more he needs to read, you do

$500 - 90 = 410$

Finally, to work out how many minutes per day, you just divide $410$ by the $6$ days he's going to read for. So you get the answer of

$\frac{205}{3} = 68. \overline{3}$

Hopefully this helped...
