Other answers:

so a is 3.5 gallons
what about part b and part c
y = 28(x - 1.5)
do you know how i got that?
what about part c
so x is the tank's capacity. and we know she only used 3.5 gallons. so x - 3.5. but then she added 2 gallons. so x - 3.5 + 2 which simplified is x - 1.5. and she can get 28 miles per gallon, so we multiply that by 28
with part c you just substitute x with 18.5
