    We are given statement ” John read the first 114 pages of a novel, which was 3 pages less than 1/3 of the novel”.

    Let us assume total number of pages of a novel = p pages.

    3 less than 1/3 of total pages = 114.

    3 less then 1/3 of P is = 114.

    \frac{1}{3}P- 3 = 114

    Therefore, required equation for number of pages of a novel is

    \frac{1}{3}P- 3 = 114.
