Answer: 8.4 gallons

Step-by-step explanation:

Cost of a gallon of gas = $1.85

Cost of gallons purchased = $15.54

If a gallon of gas costs $1.85, to get the number of gallons that one would purchase for $15.54, we have to divide $15.54 by $1.85. This will be:

= $15.54/$1.85

= 8.4

8.4 gallons will be purchased.
