Hi, I have this easy equation to figure out mentally, but I am wondering the correct way to write the formula.

I am trying to figure out \$ / kBTU of propane given the below known factors. (kBTU is a unit of energy)

Known factors

Propane = \$2.96 / Gallon

Propane = 92 kBTU / Gallon

It stands to reason that I could take \$2.96 and divide it by 92 kBTU to find that propane costs \$0.032 / kBTU

What is the correct way to figure this out? How would your right this as a formula? Is there a more methodical approach to figuring this out than to figure it out in one's head?

Thank you.
