## Beibei read a story book. On the first day, he read one sixth of the whole book. On the second day, he read 36 more pages than on the first day. At this time, the ratio of the number of pages he has read to the number of pages left is 5 to 6. How many more pages can Beibei finish reading the book

Set a total of X pages

（1/6X+1/6X+36）:[X-（1/6X+1/6X+36）]=5:6

x=297

297-（1/6X297+1/6X297+36）=162
