I need to solve a question that says: "a gallon of gasoline releases about 2.0x10^8J of energy when it is burned. How many gallons of gas must be burned to release the same amount of energy as is released when 1.0 pound of U235 undergoes fission. (Assume that each fission reaction in U235 releases 173MeV)

How would you go about solving this?
