One of the cars you find is blue. It can travel 29 and one half miles on 1 and one fourth gallons of gasoline. Another car is red. It can travel 25 and three fifths miles on four fifths gallon of gasoline. What is the unit rate for miles per gallon for each​ car? Which car could travel the greater distance on 1 gallon of​ gasoline?

Looking for mpg   or  m/g

Blue = 29.5 / 1.25 =  23.6 mpg

Red =  25.6 /.8 =  32 mpg

 

Obviously the Red car wll travel greater distance on 1 gallon of fuel.
