8-100.

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 is $65\%$ of those miles (the number of miles Karla's car gets)?

$(0.65)(60)=39$ miles per gallon
