    Answer:

    Both will be at the same page after 6.5 days and the page number will be 180.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let after x days Nora and Lila will be at the same page.

    Nora is on page 128 and plans to read 8 pages per day until the next club meeting.

    After x days Nora will be at the page number = 128 + 8x

    Similarly, Lila is on page 102 and she reads 12 pages per day.

    After x days Lila will be on page number = 102 + 12x

    Since after x days they will be at the same page

    Therefore, 128 + 8x = 102 + 12x

    12x – 8x = 128 – 102

    4x = 26

    x = \frac{26}{4}

    x = 6.5 days

    Page number they will be on = 128 + 8(6.5)

    = 128 + 52

    = 180

    Both will be at the same page after 6.5 days and the page number will be 180.
