A book has 200 paragraphs written across 34 pages. Each page has 6 paragraphs (1 to 6). I’m reading paragraph 114. What page am I on?

Answer:

since the original question numbers arent exact we can only approximate

you see with the stated facts we get for the 200th paragraph page 35.29 when it is a 34 page book

200 / (34/6) = 200 / (5+2/3)

equals about 35.29

114 / (5+2/3) equals about 20.11

about the 20th page

BUT!!

If you read past the numbers they throw in to trick you. Paragraph 114, up to 6
listing the starts of sixes, it is the nineteenth page
