Let total number of pages be x
Pages read by her on 1 day = 52
Pages left=x-52
She read 1/6 the next day
Pages read by her =1/6(x-52)
Since half the book is left so she read only x/2 book
Therefore
x/2=1/6(x-52)+52
x/2=x/6-26/3+52
x/2-x/6=-26/3+52
x/3=130/3
x=130/3*3
x=130
Total Pages in book are 130
