    substitute g(x) for 20 then solve for x \[\huge\rm 20=2(x-4)\]

    Let's calculate it minutes first, then we will convert the answer to hours.

    If she has 17 pages left, and each page has 120 sentences, how many sentences total are there left to read?

    Yes. We will use 1 hour = 60 minutes at the end to convert to hours, but let's find the number of minutes first.

    Good. She has to read 2040 sentences. She takes 1 minute to read 14 sentences. 2040 sentences is how many times 14 sentences?

    No. The other way around. This time you need to divide.

    Good. Since 2040 is 145.7 times 14, that means she needs 145.7 times 1 minute. That means she needs 145.7 minutes.

    You write: She needs to read 17 pages with 120 sentences in each page. 17 * 120 = 2040 She needs to read 2040 sentences. She reads 14 sentences in 1 minute. 2040/14 = 145.7 minutes. She needs 145.7 minutes. 1 hour = 60 minutes 145.7/60 = 2.4 hours
