Sammy reads the same number of pages from his book each night. The expression 228 – 12x shows how many pages he has left to read on any given night.
What does the term 12x represent?
A.the total number of pages Sammy has read so far
B.the total number of pages in Sammy’s book
C.the number of pages Sammy reads each night(MY ANSWER)
D. the total number of nights Sammy has been reading

- texaschic101

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.

Thanks again

- texaschic101

I wrote that wrong......x is the number of nights.
but your answer is still correct because he reads 12 pages per night
