Answer:

11.34L

Explanation:

So you have this ratio of gallons to liters:

#1:3.78#

Multiply the number of gallons by 3 to get 3 gallons, and to keep the same ratio, you must also multiply the liters by 3 as well.

#3:11.34#

Answer:

#11.34 " litres"#

Explanation:

Using ratio in fraction format. Note that this is not a fraction but a direct comparison of counts.

#("litrs")/("gallons")->3.78/1#

But we need 3 gallons so we need to change the 1 into the value of 3.

Multiply by 1 and you do not change the value. However, 1 comes in many forms.
