Puzzle :

A bookworm eats from the first page of an encyclopedia to the last page in a straight line. The encyclopedia consists of ten 1000-page volumes and is sitting on a bookshelf in the usual order. Not counting covers, title pages, etc., how many pages does the bookworm eat through?


Correct Solution : 8000

Solution Tips :

On a book shelf the first page of the first volume is on the "e;inside"e;, so the bookworm eats only through the cover of the first volume, then 8 times 1000 pages of Volumes 2 - 9, then through the cover to the 1st page of Vol 10 for a total of 8,000 pages.
Note: The question asks how many pages, not how many sheets of paper.
