Question description

  How many miles would someone who purchased a $45,000 car that gets 45 miles to the gallon have to drive to come out even with the individual who purchased a car for $35,000 which gets 35 miles to the gallon? Assume that the gas costs $2.50 per gallon. Please show work on this so I can understand it.

Thank you.
