A bookworm eats from the first page of an encyclopaedia to the last page.
The bookworm eats in a straight line.
The encyclopaedia consists of ten 1000-page volumes and is sitting on a bookshelf in the usual order.
Not counting covers, title pages, etc., how many pages does the bookworm eat through?
