### Binary Driving Instructions--Tempe AZ to Blythe CA

From my home in Tempe drive north on `LoopBinary5`. Drive north and go west on `Loop110010102` that then merges into `I-Binary2`. Drive `I-Binary2` for `10100112` miles plus or minus a few miles.

A few miles... what does that mean?

Blythe is about `164.6` miles away from my starting point in Tempe.

```   1) Round 164.6 to the nearest mile.

using the rounded value...

2) If we average 75mph, how long will
it take to get to Blythe assuming
zero stops?

3) What are the total miles to drive

4) If we get 30 miles to the gallon,
how many gallons of gas will a
roundtrip require?
