A compact car will drive three miles east, five miles west, and then 13 miles east again. The car gets 40 miles per gallon, and there is 1/4 of a gallon of gas left in the tank. Compute the relative distance and the total distance. Then decide if there is enough fuel for the trip.

    This is a two part equation. The first equation should be to compute the relative distance. The other equation should be to compute the total distance travelled for the same scenario using absolute value.
