The page numbers are 262 and 263.
Work Step by Step
Let the smaller page number be $x$. The larger page number is $x+1$. The sum of the page numbers is represented by the equation: $x+x+1=525$ Solve for x. Combine like terms. $2x+1=525$ Use the addition property of equality to subtract 1 from each side of the equation. $2x+1-1=525-1$ Simplify. $2x=524$ Use the multiplication property of equality to divide both sides of the equation by 2. $2x\div2=524\div2$ Simplify. $x=262$ Find the other page number. $x+1=262+1=263$
