    17 pages x 120 sentences = 2,040 sentences 2,040/14 = minutes needed About 146 minutes needed 146 ÷ 60 = hours and minutes left over. 2 hours and 26 minutes is the number of hours she should set aside.

    1 page= 120 sentence so divide the total of sentences of how much she can read, 120/14=8.6 and now we multiple the answer with the pages, 8.6 times the number of pages (17) and you will get, 8.6 x 17 = 146.2 which can be 2 hours and 26.2 minutes.
