To determine who reads more pages in a week, we need to calculate the number of pages each person reads per night and then multiply by the number of nights they read in a week.

Larry reads ( \frac{42}{7} = 6 ) pages per night. Anna reads ( \frac{62}{5} = 12.4 ) pages per night.

Now, we'll calculate the total pages read in a week:

Larry reads ( 6 \times 7 = 42 ) pages in a week. Anna reads ( 12.4 \times 5 = 62 ) pages in a week.

Since Anna reads 62 pages in a week while Larry reads 42 pages, Anna reads more pages in a week.
