Daniel was driving to Las Vegas which is 270 miles away from home. The first thing he did was to fill up his gasoline tank which was only a quarter full. It costed him a total of \$45 to do that. When he arrived at the destination later in the afternoon,his gasoline tank was at only one-tenth the capacity. Daniel was curious about how far, in miles, one dollar worth of gasoline can take him.Can you help him calculate? Please give the answer rounded to the nearest one-tenth of a mile.

We will have to make some assumptions.....

assume the gas in his 1/4 tank costs the same as the fill up gas

a whole tank then costs   4/3 * 45 = 60 dollars

he uses 9/10th of this = 54 dollars worth of gas to go 270 miles

270/54 = 5 miles per dollar
