1. speed=distance/time=354/(16:30-09:50)

speed=354/(6hrs 40min)=354/(6.66)=

total oil used=7*200+200=1600 gal

water heating total=200(12/5)=480gal

fraction= (480/1600)= looks like e to me

I'm too lazy to do 2 but here's question 1

9:50 central -> 10:50 eastern

10:50 -> 5:30 = 6 2/3 hours

354 divided by 6 2/3 hours -> 53.1 which rounds to 53 hours
