    Answer:

    It would take 86.4 gallons of gas to go 1,836 miles.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    the situation can be explained by the equation 16x=340, where x is how many miles the car can go in one gallon. divide both sides by 16 to get that answer

    x=340/16= 21.25

    Now the other problem can be expressed by the equation 21.25y=1836, where y is the amount of gallons it would take to go 1,836 miles.

    divide both sides by 21.25 to get the amount of gallons

    y= 1836/ 21.25= 86.4.
