Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer is 7? @YoloShroom isnt supposed to be x in the bottom? @YoloShroom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.17 isnt the answer, but 7 is the way to get to the answer. So, since it's 7 miles to one gallon, we know that if we find how many times 7 goes into 364, that we'll get the number of gallons we need right?
