    if you multiply 1120 miles by the ratio of gallons/mile , you will get gallons in other words, car A will use \( 1120\ miles \cdot \frac{1\ gallon}{16 miles} \) and car B will use \( 1120\ miles \cdot \frac{1\ gallon}{35 \ miles} \) and the difference is \[ 1120 \cdot \frac{1}{16 }- 1120 \cdot \frac{1}{35 } \]

    if you don't have a calculator you can do the division in steps (it helps to know some "rules" see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divisibility_rule) for example, 16 is 4*4 divide 4 into 1120 to get 280 then divide that by 4 to get 70 we have 70 - 1120/(5*7)

    if you add them up (use algebra) what do you get ?

    for example x+x is 2x when you add up the x's you get 5x (not just 5) now add up the numbers. what do you get ?

    yes, but you can simplify the numbers and get just 1 total for the numbers

    -5?

    yes. all of that means the sum of the "x stuff" is 5x-5 and they say they add up to 390 we can say 5x-5= 390 add 5 to both sides 5x-5+5 = 390+5 and simplify. what do you get ?

    on the left side you have -5+5 which adds to 0 so 5x+0 on the left but adding 0 does nothing, so we can just say 5x= 390+5 what do you get on the right side?

    5x= 395 divide both sides by 5 x= 395/5 = 79
