    Answer:

    240 minutes or 4 hours

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let’s start by calling the amount of pages read p, and the number of minutes it took m. You can solve this problem with the following equation:

    \frac{25p}{30m}=\frac{200p}{x}

    x\cdot\frac{25p}{30m}=200p

    x=\frac{200p}{\frac{25p}{30m}}=240m, or 240 minutes. Hope this helps!

    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    direct proportion.

    Pages : Minutes = 25:30

    25: 30 = 200 : x

    Product of extremes = Product of means

    25*x = 30*200

    x=\frac{30*200}{25}

    x = 30*8 = 240 minutes

    It will take 240 minutes or  4 hours   {240/60 = 4}
