1. A. d = 2 * 1004 = 2008 miles.
2008mi/(25mi/gal) = 80.32 gal, max required.

B. 80.32gal * 3.69/gal = \$296.38 = Budget for gas.

They fill-up each time they use 3/4 of a tank of gas(12.75 gal).
12.75gal * 25mi/gal = 318.75 miles/fill-up.

2008mi/(318.75mi/fill-up) = 6.3 or 7 fill-ups for the round trip.
