    so we can set up something like this, \(50\cancel{mi}*\dfrac{\{25\cancel{mi}}*\dfrac{$4}{1\cancel{gal}}\)

    If you drive 50 miles per week and your car gets 25 miles per gallon....then you have to get 50/25 = 2 gallons for every 50 miles..and with gas costing $4 per gallon.....you would need $8
