You are running a fuel economy study. One of the cars you find is blue. It can travel 40 and one half miles on 1 and one fourth gallons of gasoline. Another car is red. It can travel 27 and one fifth 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?

B unit rate  =  40.5 m / 1.25 gal  = 32.4 m/g        B can go   32.4 miles on one gallon

R unit rate   =  27.2m/ (4/5gal) =   34 m/ gal       R cn go 34 miles on one gallon
