change the numbers but intuitively seems wrong
boat goes 16 miles uses 8 gallons at 30 miles an hour equals 2.0mpg
30/2 = 15 gph ?
Intuitively it may reside in the mind of the beholder
For me, if I use 8 gallons and I expect 15 gph, I think I must have travelled a bit over 30 minutes. Therefore at 30 mph, I must have travelled a bit over 15 miles in that time so 16 miles seems to be intuitively correct
Maybe after a nap, this will seem better for you
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangereous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. T.E. Lawrence
