The tax per gallon of gasoline in California is $0.477. If you fill your gasoline tank with 14.4 gallons of gasoline in California, how much will you pay in taxes? Round to the nearest cent.

Result

x =  6.87 USD

Solution:

V=14.4 gal  x=0.477 V=0.477 14.4=4293625=6.8688=6.87  USD V = 14.4 \ gal \ \\ \ \\ x = 0.477 \cdot \ V = 0.477 \cdot \ 14.4 = \dfrac{ 4293 }{ 625 } = 6.8688 = 6.87 \ \text { USD }
