    Answer:

      25 gallons

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Assuming miles-per-gallon is a constant, the amount of gas is proportional to the miles driven:

      gallons/(500 mi) = (13 gal)/(260 mi)

      gallons = (500 mi)/(260 mi)(13 gal) . . . . multiply by 500 mi

      gallons = 25 gal . . . . do the arithmetic

    The van will need 25 gallons of gas to go 500 miles.
