Answer

$14.5\text{ l}\approx 3.83\text{ gal}$

Work Step by Step

If want to convert from liters to gallons, we have to consider the following conversion rate: $3.7854 \text{ l}\approx 1 \text{ gal}$ By dividing both sides by $3.7854$, we get: $1\text{ l}\approx \frac{1}{3.7854} \text{ gal}$ We mulitply both sides by 14.5 in order to get the answer to the question: $14.5\text{ l}\approx \frac{14.5}{3.7854} \text{ gal}\approx 3.8305\text{ gal}$ By rounding it to two decimal places: $14.5\text{ l}\approx 3.83\text{ gal}$
