This is pretty simple - took less than 5 seconds in my head to get the answer.

Why don't you show your math and logic instead of just asking for the answer and someone to do it for you.

Twenty pounds of carbon dioxide are produced for each gallon of gasoline
that is burned in an automobile. An employee commutes to work. She drives an average of 400 miles per week. The vehicle that she drives has a mpg rating of 20. How many pounds of carbon dioxide does she produce per year by commuting with this vehicle? Assume that she has a five-day workweek and works 50 weeks out of the year. Show your calculations. (2 points)

Sorry. Can't help myself....


You must be in 8th grade to have a math problem like this, and not be able to figure it out.

You must be a genius. It took me closer to 20 seconds (I timed myself).
