    Answer:

    Then Maria uses 3,1 gallons /min is the user with most gallons of water per minute

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Mike uses 120 pints of water for a 5 minutes shower

    1 gallon is equal to 8 pints therefore Mike uses 120/8 gallons for a 5 minutes shower

    W(mi) =  120 / 8  gallons

    W(mi) =  15 gallons for a 5 minutes shower

    Dad uses 100 quarts, as  a gallon is equal to 4 quarts

    W(d) =  100 / 4  

    W(d) = 25 gallons for a 10 minutes shower

    And  Maria

    W(ma) = 24,8 gallons for an 8 minutes shower

    Then:

    Mike uses  15 gallons / 5 min

    Mike uses 3 gallons / min

    Dad uses 25 gallons / 10 minutes

    Dad uses 2,5 gallons / min

    Maria uses 24,8 gallons / 8 min

    Maria uses 3,1 gallons /min

    Then Maria uses 3,1 gallons /min is the user with most gallons of water per minute
