Word Problem /Math

Angel's car gets 32 miles per gallon and Mo's car gets 22 miles per gallon. When traveling from Morgan Run to Clinton, they both used a whole number of gallons of gas. What is the closest that Morgan Run and Clinton could be? How many gallons did Angel's car use? How many gallons did Mo's car use?

HOW DO I FIGURE THIS PROBLEM OUT?

I'm not sure but wouldn't it be for Angels car 30 and mos 20. Because its saying whole number .

Find a number than when divided by 32 gives a whole number and when divided by 20 gives a whole number. 160 will work.
