# The distance you travel varies directly with the amount of gas you use. You can travel 300 miles on 12 gallons of gas. Question: a. You want to know how much gas it will take to for your entire road trip that is 750 miles. Write a proportion to solve this equation. b. How many gallons will it take? c. If gas is \$3.75 a gallon, how much will it cost in gas to go on your road trip? d. What is the cost per mile? THESE ARE NOT ANSWER CHOICES < I HAVE TO DO WHAT EACH SAY> PLZ HELP I CANT GET THIS WRONG The points only to the person who explain with answer

a.It will take 30 gallons of gas to complete the road trip. b.To solve this, you have to find out how many miles you get with each gallon. 300 ÷ 12 = 25. So you get 25 miles per gallon. Next, you have to divide the 750 miles by 25 miles per gallon. 750 ÷ 25 = 30. Therefore, you will need 30 gallons of gas. c.We already know we need 30 gallons. If one gallon is \$3.75, divide 30 by 3.75 and the answer is \$112.50. d.To find the cost per mile, we need to know the total amount of miles in the road trip. The entire trip is 750 miles. Next we take the \$112.50 and divide it by 750. The answer you get is 0.15. Therefore the cost per mile is 0.15¢.
