## Conclusion/Impression

Write down one conclusion or impression you can draw from the data in the table.

## Compose two questions.

Compose two questions you would like to have answered to help you interpret the information in the table

## Suburban strategy/info

A suburban has a fuel compacity of 31 gallons. How can you use this information for find how far a suburban can travel on one tank of gas? DO NOT SOLVE, EXPLAIN A STRATEGY.

## How to write unit rates.

Calculate the distance that a suburban can travel on one gallon of gas. Write your solutions as a unit fraction/ratio, with labels in both numerator or denominator.

## Create a table/coordinate plane

You will complete the table for comparison of gallons of gas used to drive and mile driven on your handout. Then, create a graph to show the relationship with gallons-miles driven. Please label your axis and each scale factor!!!

## Constant rate!

What you just calculated was the constant rate and slope of the relationship of every gallon used in the car to how many miles driven!
Slope- Constant rate of change from one value to another.

## Make a statement!

Write a few sentences in your own words, describing the behavior of your graph relates to the information in the problem.
