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!
