    Think:  “1 chapter in 6 days.”  Now if we consider 24 days (which is 4 times 6 days), then the number of chapters that can be written in 24 days is 4.

    Alternatively, set up and solve an equation of ratios:

    1      6 days

    — = ————-

    x      24 days

    This yields x = 4; 4 chapters can be written in 24 days.

    I think that the answer would be 4 chapters.

    Sorry if I’m wrong!
