Lisa's car get 22 miles per gallon of gasoline. How many miles can she drive on 24 gallon of gas?

  • Math- college -

    to get this, we just use ratio and proportion:
    let x = miles travelled with 24 gallons

    22 miles : 1 gallon = x miles : 24 gallons
    therefore,
    22/1 = x/24
    x = 22*24
    x = 528 miles

    hope this helps~ :)
