Problem Statement:

If a car has a fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon (mpg) and has a gas tank that holds 14.5 gallons of fuel, what is its range? It if travels at an average speed of 50 miles, what is its endurance?




In reality, you wouldn't want to run the tank dry, so the practical range and endurance are smaller than these values.
