Answer:Step-by-step explanation:So it's basically an extra special complicated addition problem.  Let's take it step by step.We'll call the books book A, B and C.  Well we know Book A has 120 more pages than book B, so if we say book B has x pages, then book A has x +120 pages.  Then we know that x is 75 less than the third, so we can say book C has x + 75 pages.  So in order the number of pages each book has are A = x + 120B = xC = x + 75We also know A + B + C = 1005.  Can you handle it from there?  Or is there anything you don't understand?
