The pressure in car tires is often measured in pounds per square inch (lb/in.2), with the recommended pressure being in the range of 25 to 45 lb/in.2. Suppose a tire has a pressure of 37.5 lb/in.2. Convert 37.5 lb/in.2 to its equivalent in atmospheres.
Express the pressure numerically in atmospheres.
