Math 1012: QRMS Quiz 2 Feb. 17, 2012 Name: 2B 65 Suppose that a fuel-efficient German car travels an average of 26 kilometers on 1 liter of gasoline. If gasoline costs 1.50 euros per liter, how much will it cost to drive 300 kilometers? Solution: We have the quantities: 26 km/L , 1 . 5 /L, 300 km To get the desired units of euros ( ) we can combine the units as follows: km ÷ km L × L = km × L km × L = . Doing the same computation with the numbers gives: Total cost = (300 km) ÷ 26 km L × 1 . 5 L = 17 . 31 Optionally we could convert this to dollars by applying the appropriate conversion factor (found in the text): 17 . 31 × $1 . 256 €1 = $21 . 74 3B 60 In 2007, Walmart had profits of $12.7 billion.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
