    Cost to travel 75 miles = 11.55 $

    Explanation:

    A scooter can travel between 22 and 28 miles on each gallon of gasoline.

    Average distance a scooter can travel with each gallon of gasoline = (22+28) / 2 = 25 miles.

    One gallon of gasoline costs between $3.75 and 3.95 per gallon.

    Average cost for one gallon of gasoline = (3.75+3.95) / 2 = 3.85 $

    We need to find cost for traveling 75 miles.

    Gasoline required = Total miles / Average distance a scooter can travel with each gallon of gasoline

    = 75/25 = 3 gallons.

    Cost to travel 75 miles = Gasoline required x Average cost for one gallon of gasoline

    = 3 x 3.85

    = 11.55 $
