The page numbers on the opposite side are (6-1) and (27+1) which is 5 and 28.

The number of pages is twice the (6+(27-1))/2

Therefore the number of pages = 2 xx (6+(27-1))/2

                                             = 32.

The other way to get this is there are 5 more pages before 6, therefore there should be 5 more pages after 27 also. Therefore the number of pages = 27+5 = 32.

I don't know how to answer this but why there should be more 5 pages after 27??
