Example 4.2.11

The gas tank in Sofia's car holds 14 gal of fuel. Over the course of a long road trip, her car uses fuel at an average rate of 0.032 galmi. If Sofia fills the tank at the beginning of a long trip, then the amount of fuel remaining in the tank, \(y\text{,}\) after driving \(x\) miles is given by the equation \(y=14-0.032x\text{.}\) Make a suitable table of values and graph this equation.
