    Step-by-step explanation:

    On day one = few pages (x)

    On day two = twice of pages read on day one (2x)

    On day three = 6 less than the page read the first day (x-6)

    Total pages read = x+2x + (x-6) = 458

    4x-6=458

    4x=458+6=464

    x = 464:4

    x=116

    Pages read on day three was 110
