My dream car gets 21 MPG.

X= G/M

G= gallons of gas which is 60

M= miles per gallon 21

X = miles driven ??

The problem would look like this:

60/21= 2.857 or 3 mpg

If u continue to solve the problem you will see that:

3 mpg * 60 gallons of gas = 180 mpg per 60 gallons

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THIS IS CORRECT IF NOT PLEAS SHOW ME WHERE I WENT WRONG... THANK YOU

**bobpursley**, Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 12:33pmYour wording is quite wrong.

"180 mpg per 60 gallons". Nuts to that. it is 180miles per 60 gallons.

Secondly, I would never round up 2.857 to 3. Why would you do that?

**bobpursley**, Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 12:51pmNo, I would not round that. Maybe to 2.9, but no further.
