Question: you are trying to decide which of two automobiles to...

Question details

You are trying to decide which of two automobiles to buy. The first is American-made, costs $2.9500 x 104, and travels 28.0 miles/gallon of fuel. The second is European-made, costs $3.9100 x 104, and travels 17.0 km/liter of fuel. If fuel costs $3.50/gallon, and other maintenance costs for the two vehicles are identical, how many miles must each vehicle travel in its lifetime for the total costs (puchase cost + fuel cost) to be equivalent? x 105 miles.
