Question description

please help


Using Pólya's problem solving model solved the following problem.
Two volumes of Newman's "The World of Mathematics" stand side by side, in order, on a shelf. A bookworm starts at page i of Volume I and bores its way in a straight line to the last page of Volume II. Each cover is 2mm thick, and the first volume is 17/19 as thick as the second volume. The first volume is 38 mm thick without its cover. How far does the bookworm travel?
