## daniellemmcqueen 3 years ago You have 1/4 of a tank of gas and 10 dollars in your wallet. Gas is \$2.50/gallon and your car holds 13 gallons. Explain how you would find out how many total gallons you will have in your car after you put in \$10 worth of gas.

1. princeofwetlot

\$10 worth of gas...to find how many gallon that is divide it by 2.5 i think that's 4 gallons now the capacity of your car is 13 gallons...you originally have 1/4 of that so original is 13/4 now add 13/4 + 4 to get how many gallons you now have

2. daniellemmcqueen

um, i have no clue.. um 13/4 4?

3. princeofwetlot

4 in fraction form is 16/4 13/4 + 16/4 = 29/4 now simplify

4. daniellemmcqueen

when i told you to google or use a calculator you should have @daniellemmcqueen instead of trying to verify each one of the choices in your multiple choice ^_^ you just have to type and google does the work for you
