Greetings, problem solvers! This week's installment of Word Problem Wednesday is for all of you bibliophiles who savored every word on their summer reading lists this year. Give our word problem a try and check back tomorrow for the answer!
Yesterday, Max read half of a book. Today, he read a third of what was left. What fractional part of the whole book is left for Max to read?
Update: Here's the solution!
After Max reads half of the book, there’s one half left. A third of a half is a sixth, so Max has read 1/2 + 1/6 = 3/6 + 1/6 = 4/6 = 2/3 of the book. That means he has 3/3 – 2/3 = 1/3 of the book left to read.
