A hybrid car averages 607 miles on a 12.1 gallon tank of gas. Manny is planning a 1220 mile vacation in his car. How many gallons of gas will his car burn?

We can solve with a proportion

 

12.1 / 607   =  x / 1220        cross-multiply

 

1220 * 12.1  =  607 * x        simplify

 

14762  =  607 * x        divide both sides by  607

 

 About   24.32   gallons   =  x
