Ryan must read 150 pages for school tomorrow. It took him 30 minutes to read the first 20 of the assigned pages. At this rate, how much additional time will it take him to finish the reading?

A. 1 2/3 hr
B. 2 1/6 hr
C. 3 1/4 hr
D. 7 1/2 hr

The answer is C.

Solution: 

20 pages = 30 minutes 

150 pages - 20 pages ( for reading the first 20 assigned pages) = 130 

130 divided by 20 = 6. 5 

6.5 x 30 = 195 minutes

195 minutes = 3 1/4 hr
