Joeys father stops at the gas station to buy gas. The car has a 16 gallon tank, and the feul gauge says there are 34 of a tank of gas. If joeys dad buys 6 gallons of gas, what fraction of the tank will the carĀ“s feul gauge read??

The gas gauge is not accurate. If it was reading 3/4 full, there should have been 12 gallons in the car, and it could not have held 6 more. Many cars are like that. When they say 1/2 to 3/4 full, there is really less than that amount available, but then they say E, there is usually one or two gallons still available.
