Answer:86.4 gallons of gas

Step-by-step explanation:1836/340=5.4

5.4 * 16 = 86.4

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.
