Divide 380 to 14 to find out how many miles you travel with 1 gallon of gas in the tank.

Then you can multiply by \(\sf \dfrac{1}{4}\) to see if you will make it to the gas station with 1/4 gal. of gas in your tank.

i multiplied 180 by 14. got 27.14 then divided that by 1/4 and got 108.57. That isnt an answer choice.

You mean you divided \(\sf 380 \div 14\) and got \(\sf 27.14\)..that's correct, but you half to multiply by \(\sf \dfrac{1}{4}\), not divide.
