There are several information's already given in the question. Based on those information's, the answer can be easily deduced. Amount of gasoline required by Harry's car to travel 25 miles = 1 gallon Then amount of gasoline required by Harry's car to travel 15000 miles = 15000/25                                                          = 600 gallons So  Amount of CO2 released by burning 1 gallon of gasoline = 20 pounds Then Amount of CO2 released by burning 600 gallon of gasoline = 600 * 20                                                       = 12000 pounds From the above deduction, it can be concluded that the amount of CO2 that will be added by Harry's car to the atmosphere is 12000 pounds.
