Suppose that you learn, prior to your trip to British Columbia, that gasoline will cost $1.50 (in Canadian dollars) for every liter you purchase. You know from checking the Internet that 1 liter is equivalent to 0.26 gallons and the currency conversion rate for the Canadian dollar is about .98 U.S. dollars. How much will gasoline cost you, per gallon in U.S. dollars, for your trip

  • math -

    1 L ---> 1.50 CND
    = 1.5(.98) = 1.47 US

    .26 gallons ---> 1.47 US
    1 gallon ---> 1.47/.26 = 5.65 US

    (Yesterday, in Ontario I paid $1.163 /L
    and the dollar was at par,
    and there are 3.79 L in a US gallon
    so in $US , cost per gallon = 3.79(1.163) = $4.41)
