gas in Germany cost 1.50 euros per liter. how much is this in dollars per gallon

Accepted Solution

To solve this problem, you will have to first find how many US Dollars are in 1 Euro. Upon looking this up, I see that currently 1 Euro is worth 1.23 US Dollars. Next, you must calculate how many liters are in a gallon. Looking this up shows that 1 liter is equal to 0.264 gallons.

Since 0.264 is not a whole gallon and we are asked to find the price per gallon, we should next calculate how many liters can fit in a gallon. To do this, we will divide 1 by 0.264, which gives us 3.78. This tells us that 3.78 liters will fit into a gallon.

The cost of 1L of gas in euros is 1.50 Euros. Since we need 3.78L to equal 1 gallon, we can calculate the cost of this to be:

3.78 * 1.50 = €5.67

Earlier we determined that 1 euro is worth 1.23 US Dollars. Our final step is to convert our €5.67 per gallon to dollars per gallon. To do this, we simply have to multiply 5.67 by 1.23. This gives us $6.97.

So, our answer is that the cost is $6.97 per gallon.

Hopefully this is correct and makes sense to you. This is how I would approach the question.
