d. 900
Step 1
We first need to find out the total amount of empty space in both these shelves together.
Step 2
Chi has a

full shelf. So, we need to figure out what fraction is empty.

We can calculate that as 1 -

1
6

Step 3
Similarly Lei has 1 -

15
17

fraction of his shelf empty.

Step 4
Now we need to add these two together to find out the total fraction empty in these two
shelves together.

Step 5
Now we are also told that if we distribute 970 among Chi and Lei then the shelves will be filled.
So the fraction

97
102

of the shelves can be filled using 970 books.

Step 6
So we see that the total number of books that can be held in a shelf is
970

97
102

= 1020.

So each shelf can hold 1020 books.


Step 7
We also know Lei has

1020 x

of his shelf filled. So it's just a matter of finding out the value of
