**This is the picture of my(and my partner's) "Pennsylvania Turnpike Investigation." I'm going to explain what we did to get the answers. I think the number lines are wrong so I'm just going to make new ones to make it more easier to understand.**

**1) How many gallons of gas and what fraction of a full tank of gas did Maria use on the turnpike driving from her house to Lance's house?**

** - First, we found out that Maria's to Lance's house was 110 miles.- **

**110 miles is also 3 and 1/3. 3 and 1/3 is how much gallons of gas, out of 15, she used to get to Lance's house.**

**2) What fraction of a full tank of gas did she use on the turnpike driving to the combined distance from her house to Lance's house to Alicia's house?**

** - We already knew the distance from Maria's to Lance's so we had to figure out the distance to Lance's to Alicia's.- To get that, we subtracted 242 by 55 and we got 187.- **

**So we added them together to get 297 miles.**

- Then, we did 297 divided by 33 (which is the miles by the miles per gallon) and we got 9.

- She used 9 gallons out of 15 gallons to get to the combined distances.

- Then, we did 297 divided by 33 (which is the miles by the miles per gallon) and we got 9.

- She used 9 gallons out of 15 gallons to get to the combined distances.

**3)How much time will she spend driving on the turnpike when she drives back home to Philadelphia?**

- First, we turned 110 miles into time which was 1 hour and 50 mins.

- Then, we subtracted 10 minutes to get 1 hour and 40 mins because we couldn't find another way to get 1 hour and 40 mins.

- We did the same thing to 187 miles and we got 3 hours and 7 mins then we subtracted 10 mins and we got 2 hours and 57 mins.

- We added it together and we got 4 hours and 37 minutes
