. Last Tuesday a trucker paid $155.76, including 10 percent state and federal taxes, for diesel fuel. What was the price per gallon for the fuel if the taxes are excluded?

(1) The trucker paid $0.118 per gallon in state and federal taxes on the fuel last Tuesday.

(2) The trucker purchased 120 gallons of the fuel last Tuesday

Plz explain

2>.    x^2 - 1 < 0

       (x-1)(x+1) < 0

i.e. x will lie between -1 and +1 and i think its sufficient.
