A weather reporter stated the amount of water that flooded 1 kilometer of a roadway was 30,000 gallons. If car accidents occur when the water reaches 30,000 liters per 0.5 kilometer, would the cars be in danger of an accident? Explain your answer. (Hint: 1 liter = 0.26 gallons.)
First convert the 30,000 gallons to liters. 30000 / .26 = 115385 liters in the 1 kilometer of roadway. If car accidents occur in 30000 per .5 kilometer, multiply the 30000 by 2 to get the measurement for 1 km: 60000 115385 is much greater than 60000. The cars are in danger of an accident.
