1. The American car because 32 miles = 51.5 km and since it uses a gallon which is 3.785l you divide the 51.5 by 3.785 which gives you 13.376km per liter which is more that 12.7 (European)

2. Answer: the American car gets better gas mileage.

Step-by-step explanation:

American car travels 32 miles on 1 gallon of gas. This means that its gas mileage is 32 miles per gallon.

European car travels 12.7 km on 1 L of gas. We would convert 12.7 km to miles.

1 kilometer = 0.621 mile

12.7 kilometer = 12.7 × 0.621 = 7.8867 miles

We would also convert 1 L to gallons.

1 liter = 0.264 us gallons

Therefore, the gas mileage of the European car in miles per gallon would be

7.8867/0.264 = 29.87 miles per gallon.

Therefore, since 32 miles per gallon is greater than 29.87 miles per gallon, it means that the American car gets better gas mileage.
