Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically the correct way would be to divide 17.60 by 0.55 to calculate the number of gallons used. (a) 17.6 = 0.55g ....to solve this, you would divide both sides by 0.55 1.7.6/0.55 = g (this is correct) (b) 17.60/0.55 = g (this is correct as well) (c) 0.55g = 17.6...you would divide both sides by 0.55 g = 17.6/0.55 (this is correct) (d) 0.55/g = 17.5.....to solve this, you would multiply both sides by g 0.55 = 17.5/g (incorrect)
