E. 1/(mp)


we can also solve it by substituting numbers to the variables if you have difficulty in understanding

Let's substitute good numbers to the variable:

p=4, m=2=> p=4 pages in \(\frac{1}{2}\)minutes
thus => 8 pages in 1 minutes
=> 16 pages in 2(m) minutes


thus 16 pages is the answer question is asking for.

let's substitute p=4 and m=2 in the options and the answer choice which gives 16 is the right answer
only option B works( pm^2=4* (2^2)=16 )

Answer: B

p in \(\frac{1}{m}\)
x in m

Cross multiply -> \(\frac{x}{m} = p*m\) => \(x = p*m^2\) - Answer B
