The capacity of the gas tank in a car is 16.5 gallons. The car uses 10.5 gallons to travel 178.5 miles. After driving 85 more miles, only 1 gallon of gasoline remains in the tank. Which linear equation and graph model the amount of gas g left in the tank after driving m miles?

  • algebra 2 - ,

    178.5mi/10.5gal = 17 mi/gal
    This is consistent with 85mi/5gal, so

    g(m) = 16.5 - m/17
