Thanks, Tom, I was hoping someone would mention the gas mileage question. We, too, had MANY students calculate correctly, but choose Tom with the better mileage. 9th graders aren't filling up their tanks, yet. Perhaps we'd have better results if the question turns up on the Math B?

A little off topic, but concerning the miles per gallon question:
We had quite a few students correctly calculate the number of miles per gallon each car gets, (12.5 and 15) but then chose Tom's car as being better than Ann's, because the number is lower.

FINALLY! We now know why SUV's have been selling so well for all these years!
