    Answer:

    3.2 gallons more.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Kevin used  95 / 15 = 6.333 gallons of gasoline.

    Amanda used 125/40 =  3.125 gallons.

    So Kevin used 6.333 – 3.125

    = 3.2 gallons more.

    1. 95 miles : 15 miles = 6,333 gallons Kevin

    2. 125 miles : 40 miles = 3,125 gallons Amanda

    3. 6.333 – 3,125 = 3.208 more gallons Kevin
