    1) The first part of the of the problem means that for every 10 gallons of gas, you can drive 240 miles.
    2) You can make a ratio where 240mi/10gal = 216mi/Xgal.
    3)Then cross multiply to get 240X=2160.
    4) X = 9gal

    i found out it was 24 miles per gallon and divided 216 and 24 then multiplied the answer by 24 and i got
