Volume 1 and 2 of a two volume set of math books sit next to each other on a shelf. They sit in their proper order: Volume 1 on the left and Volume 2 on the right.Each front and back cover is 0.125 inches thick and the pages portion of each book is 1 inches thick. If a bookworm starts at page one of Volume 1 and burrows all the way trough to the last page of Volume how far will it travel?

    2.5 inches..now I am not 100% but I'm pretty shore that is the correct answer because if you multiply 4 book backs and fronts at 0.125 each all together that's 0.5 of an inch then add the 2 inches and ... 2.5 inches (2 1/2) But in another way it could be 2 inches because they don't clarify wether the whole book is an inch or an inch plus the front and back covers? So I hope I helped a little bit
