    Answer:

    7.9 ounces

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Hello, great question. These types are questions are the beginning steps for learning more advanced Equations.

    For this problem we can use a simple Rule of Three property to solve this problem.

    \frac{3.5 oz}{17.5 gl} = \frac{x}{39.5 gl}

    Now we cross multiply 3.5 by 39.5 and then divide the answer by 17.5 to get x like so,

    \frac{3.5oz*39.5gl}{17.5gl} = x

    7.9oz = x

    Finally, we can see that 7.9 ounces should be added to the 39.5 gallons of gasoline.
