    This is probably directly proportional

    disregarding other factors such as eyestrain, fires, and apocalypses.

    4:6

    treat as fraction

    4/6=2/3

    how long to read 6

    6/x=2/3

    multiply 2/3 by 3/3 since 2 times 3=6

    6/x=6/8

    x=8

    60X6=360 seconds, 360 divided by 4 = 90, James takes 90 seconds to read one page. 90X6=540, 540divided by 60 is 9. James takes 9 minutes to read 6 pages.
