1.) Fuel Efficiency: On Friday, you left for a weekend camping trip with 110 miles on the odometer and 14.5 gallons of gas in the tank of your car. When you returned on Sunday, the odometer read 299 miles and you still had 7.5 gallons of gas left. What was the fuel efficiency of your car on this trip?

2.) Production Rate: When you stared your shift at 7:00A.M., 120 steel valves had already been machined and were ready for assembly. At 3:00P.M., your shift ended and 424 steel valves were now completed and ready for assembly. The target production rate is 36 steel valves per hour. What was the production rate for your shift? Would your supervisor be satisfied with the work pace?

299 - 110 = 189 miles
14.5 - 7.5 = 7 gallons
189 / 7 = ______ mpg
