How many quarts in a gallon? what is the meaning of the word quart?

## Quart

as a noun, a united states liquid unit equal to 32 fluid ounces four quarts equal one gallon

a British imperial capacity measures liquid or dry equally to two pints or 1.136 liters

a united states dry unit equal to two pints or 67.2 cubic inches quart is spelled q u a r t

hey today we’re going to talk about doing math with the different units for liquid volume in the United States

we use four main units to measure the volume of liquids like milk or water they are gallons quarts pints and cups

we have them ordered from the largest volume to the smallest volume now let’s review how these units compare to each other

numerically meaning with values there are two cups in one pint there are two pipes in one quart and there are four quarts in one gallon

we’ve been using this chart to help us remember how these volumes relate to each other but

what if we want to know a bigger number like how many cups are in a gallon?

let’s find out start with the numbers of cups and we’re going to find how many pints how many quarts and how many gallons are in that same number of cups

so, let’s start with this first one here it says two cups and we want to find out how many pints are in two cups

we know that from our chart we know two cups is equal to one pint

now we have four cups if I have four cups how many pints do, I have well let’s see if I had another two cups, I would have another pint so I would have two pints total

between the number of cups and the number of pints between these two it looks like the number of cups divided by two is equal to the number of pints

we have two divided by two we get one if we have four divided by two, we get to now

let’s say we had eight cups well if I know the number of cups divided by two is going to equal to the number of pipes eight divided by two is equal to four and

now if I had 16 cups if I divide 16 by 2, I get my number of pints 16 divided by 2 is 8 so we know that there is a factor of 2 that is difference between cups and pints now let’s go to the next one let’s go

### Pints to quarts

How many quarts in a gallon?

so let’s start with the one we know we know that two pints are equal to one quart

so I have two pints that one is equal to one quart now what if I had four pints like it says on my table well

if I had four pints I’d have another set up here and then I would have another quart so if I had four pints I would have two quarts now do you see a pattern between the number of pints and the number of quarts it looks like it’s the same as this the pattern between cups and pints my number of pints divided by two is equal to my number of quarts four divided by two is equal to two

so, if I had eight pints and I divided that by two I would have four quarts and now if I only had one pint and I’ve I’d divide 1 by 2 that will give me half of a quart ok now let’s go

#### Quarts to gallons

How many quarts in a gallon?

here be inside with the one we know we know that 4 quarts are equal to one gallon but what if I only had two quarts so if I had half the number of quarts, I would have half of a gallon so this one would be 1/2

now you see any patterns here it might be easier 1/4 divided by what is equal to 1 yeah 4 divided by 4 so that’s the factor of difference between quarts and gallons by taking the number of quarts and

I divide it by 4 I get the number of gallons so if I had over here just one quart, I would have 1/4 a 1/4 of a gallon and if I have half of a quart

How many quarts in a gallon?

so if I have just this half-up here I’m going to divide that by 4 and this one might be a little bit trickier if we take 1/2 and we divide it by 4 that is the same as saying 1/2 as a fraction times 1/4 so making this into a fraction and then I multiply across I have a 1 on the top and I have an 8 on the bottom it’s okay if this is tricky for you

How many quarts in a gallon?

now I can see how many gallons is equal to the number of cups or how many cups are in a gallon so if I look here at my 1 gallon here if I go over to my cups column I know that 1 gallon is equal to 16 cups notes say if I wanted to convert from one quart I can say 1 quart is equal to 4 cups so I can use a table to help me convert between two units that are farther apart than just cups to pints or pints to quarts great job building out
