    1. Solve using the five-step problem-solving process. Show all steps necessary to arrive at your solution.

    The sum of the page numbers on the facing pages of a book is 285. Find the larger page number.

    Let the larger page number be x

    Then smaller page number will be x - 1 as both the pages are facing pages.

    Given sum of pages is 285

    Therefore equation x + x - 1 = 285

    Now we will solve this equation

    2x - 1 = ...
