Question

Me spivak had 5 gallons of gas. he used 1 gallon in his tractor and 3 quarts in his lawnmower. how much gas was left?

1. The amount of gas left is 3.25 gallons

How to determine the amount of gas left?

The given parameters are:
Total gallons of gas =  5 gallons
Tractor = 1 gallon
Lawnmower = 3 quarts
The amount of gas left is calculated as:
Amount left = Total gallons of gas – Tractor – Lawnmower
Substitute the known values in the above equation
Amount Left = 5 gallons – 1 gallon – 3 quarts
Convert quarts to gallons
Amount Left = 5 gallons – 1 gallon – 3 * 0.25 gallons
So, we have:
Amount Left = 5 gallons – 1 gallon – 0.75 gallons
Evaluate the difference
Amount Left = 3.25 gallons
Hence, the amount of gas left is 3.25 gallons
