Converting the words to formulas we want a final ratio (or fraction) of miles and gallons. We are given both miles and gallons in the statement, so we simply put them into fractional form with dimensions that match our desired units (miles/gallon).

(508.25 miles)/(26.75 gallons) = 19 mpg

To calculate miles per gallon (MPG), we divide the total number of miles driven by the amount of gas consumed.

Given: Gas used = 26.75 gallons Distance traveled = 508.25 miles

MPG = Distance traveled / Gas used MPG = 508.25 miles / 26.75 gallons MPG ≈ 19 miles per gallon

So, Lonnie got approximately 19 miles per gallon.
