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?

    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 = \(\Large 41.4\over4\) = ?
