Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Look at this, if 1 page has 350 words, 820 pages means you multiply 820 by 350, then you will get the total number of words in 820 pages.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep, thats the total number of words. Next I like to use some Physics knowledge in it, its simple just a formula. \[Speed=\frac{distance}{time}\] We know the speed = 100words/min Distance(interpreted as) = 287000words Therefore you get \[110=\frac{287000}{time}\]
