**Pennsylvania Turnpike Investigation***Sorry but I can't see the picture. :(*

**I'm going to talk about the "Pennsylvania Turnpike Investigation". I am going to explain how we get the answers.**

*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 subtract 352 and 242 the answer is 110. 110 is the mile from Maria's to Lance's.**

**-110 is the same as 3 and 1/3.**

**-1/3 out of 15 is how much gallons she used on the turnpike 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 subtract 287 by 55 and we got 187 then we add 110 and 187 and we got 297 miles.**

**- then Jenna and I decided to divide it by 33 and the answer is 9.**

**- it's obvouisly that she used 9 out of 15 gallons to get the distances.**

*3.How much time will she spend driving on the turnpike when she drives back home to Philadelphia?***- we add 1 hour ( 60 mins.) to 40 minutes the answer is 100.**

**- then, we divide 242 and 100 and we got 2.42**

**- we add 242 by 55 the answer is 297 and we divide it by 2.42 and we got 2 hours 2 minnutes and 2 seconds.**
