    wait.....lets see what triciall says. Lets say the cost (c) is $5 .07(5 - 0.05(5) .07 (5 - 0.25) .07 (4.75) so the discounted cost is 4.75 .

    x represents the pages he read each night...so if you read for 4 nights....you would have read (12)(4) = 48 pages. The 228 is the total pages in the book. So you are correct...12x is the number of pages he has read per night.
