Philip is going on a 4000-kilometer road trip with three friends. The car consumes 6 liters of gas per 100 kilometers and gas costs $1.50 per liter.

If Philip and his friends want to split the cost of gas evenly, how much should they each pay?

  1. 4000/100 = 40

    (40 * 6 * 1.50)/4 = $_______ for each

  2. 4000km * 6L/100km = 240 Liters of gas used.
    Cost, each = ( 240L * 1.50/L)/4 =
