# Julio and Jake start their reading assignments the same day. Jake is reading a 168-page book at a rate of 24 pages per day. Julio's book is 180 pages long and his reading rate is 11 times Jake's rate. After 5 days, who will have more pages left to read?

Jake

#### Explanation:

PLju = Pages Left for Julio
PPDju = Pages Per Day for Julio = $24 \times 11 = 264$

PLjk = Pages Left for Jake
PPDjk = Pages Per Day for Jake = 24

For Jake:
PLjk $= 168 - \left(5 \times 24\right) = 48$

ForJulio:
PLju $= 180 - \left(5 \times 264\right) = 0$

(He can't read more than the 180 pages so Julio has no pages left to read of his 180 page book, he finished it the first day.)
