I started out on the journey from the forest with a full tank of fuel, 12 gallons exactly. However, the moment I started out, the fuel tank sprung a leak. I travelled at 50 mph until I ran out of fuel exactly 4 hours later. I know that the car does 25 miles for each gallon. How much fuel had I lost through the hole?



I had lost 4 gallons.

Since I travelled at 50 mph for 4 hours = 200 miles, I used 8 gallons for my journey.
