Filled book = 64 stamps
5 weeks = 25 stamps.
So first calculate how many more stamps she has left to collect if she want to fill the book up :)

- butterflydreamer

Number of stamps left to collect = No. of stamps in filled book - 25 stamps
Number of stamps left to collect = 64 - 25 = ?

39

yep :)
so number of stamps left to collect = 39
We want to find how many weeks it will take to collect 39 stickers if she collects them at 3 stickers per week.

- butterflydreamer

so 39 divided by 3 = ?
