    Given that Sabia read 5/8 of 160 pages of the book.
    Therefore 5/8 x 160 = 100 pages read by Sabina.
    Alia read 40 pages more than Sabina.
    That means 100 + 40 = 140 pages.
    In fraction
    (The number of pages read by Alia) / Total pages in the book) = 140/160
    =7/8
    That means number of pages read by Alia express as 7/8 in fraction.

    5/8 means here the book is divided into 8 parts and Sabina has read 5 parts out of 8.
    total pages=160
    160 pages divided into 8 parts = 160/8=20 pages for 1 part
    since 20 pages makes 1 part Alia has read 40 pages i.e 2 parts more than Sabina
    so Alia has read 7 parts out of 8 =7/8.

    As per question- Sabina read 5/8 of 160 pages of the book.
    Therefore,5/8 of 160= 5/8 x 160
    = 100 pages read by Sabina.
    Alia read 40 pages more than Sabina.
    So,100 + 40 = 140 pages read by Alia.
    In fraction, the number of pages read by Alia,
    =(The number of pages read by Alia) / Total pages in the book)
    = 140/160
    =7/8
    Ans- Alia has read 7 parts out of 8=7/8(87.5%)
