The cost of diesel fuel is about \$3.00 per gallon. What is the estimated fuel cost for the round trip?

(1 gallon/5 miles)*(720 miles) = ??? gallons

4. jim_thompson5910

5. Yolo4mecuite

144

6. jim_thompson5910

so you use 144 gallons, good (144 gallons)*(3 dollars/1 gallon) = ??? dollars

7. Yolo4mecuite

432

8. jim_thompson5910

yep, it will cost you a total of \$432 to fill up 144 gallons
