Karla’s traditional hybrid car gets 35% fewer miles per gallon than Jeenie’s solar hybrid car. If Jeenie’s car gets 60 miles per gallon, how many miles per gallon does Karla’s car get? Calculate Karla’s car’s mileage in two different ways, using two different scale factors (multipliers). Homework Help ✎

100% − 35% = 65%

Karla's car gets 65% of the miles Jeenie's car gets.

If Jeenie's car gets 60 miles per gallon, how much is65% of those miles (the number of miles Karla's car gets)?

(0.65) (60) = 39 miles per gallon
