Miles driven on $12 of brand I gasoline = (number of gallons)*(price per gallon) = 12/0.8*40 =12*50 = 600 miles;

Miles driven on $12 of brand II gasoline = (number of gallons)*(price per gallon) = 12/0.75*36 = 12*4/3*36 = 576 miles.

Difference = 600 - 576 = 24 miles.

Answer: B.

Brand 1
0.8 dollars gives 1 gallon => 12 dollars give 12/0.8 = 15 gallons
1 gallon gives 40 miles => 15 gallons give 600 miles

Brand 2
0.75 dollars gives 1 gallon => 12 dollars give 12/0.75 = 16 gallons
1 gallon gives 36 miles => 16 gallons give 576 miles

Therefore Brand 1 gives 600-576 = 24 miles more
