## ashneedhelp Your parents allow you to borrow a car to get to your part-time job, but you have to pay for a tank of gas each month. Gasoline costs \$2.76/gallon and the tank takes 15 gallons. You have 2 coworkers who are each willing to pay for a quarter of a tank each month to carpool with you to work. How much do you save each month? one year ago one year ago

almost... a quarter of a whole = $$\Large 1\over4$$ amount saved = amount you'd pay - amount the co-workers pay amount you pay = 41.4 (good job there) amount EACH co-worker pays = a quarter of this = $$\Large 41.4\over4$$ = ?
