Different objects have different ways of being measured. For this quiz, we will be measuring volume of liquids. A gallon is a unit measure of volume. For example, if we want to buy milk, we will buy the milk in volume. We then need to decide how much volume we wish to buy it in. We can buy it in a gallon, in a quart or in a pint.

A gallon can be broken down into smaller volumes of measurement that include quarts and pints.

There are 4 quarts in one gallon and there are 8 pints in one gallon. So:

4 quarts = 1 gallon

8 pints = 1 gallon

There are then 2 pints in every quart. So if there are 2 pints in every quart, how many pints are in a gallon? We simply multiply 4 quarts by 2 pints or 4 x 2 = 8. This is how we know we have 8 pints in a gallon.

If you want to know how many pints are in 4 gallons, you would simply multiply 4 (gallons) by 8 (pints) or 4 x 8 = 32 so there are 32 pints in 4 gallons.

If you want to know how many quarts are in 4 gallons, you would simply multiply 4 (gallons) by 4 quarts or 4 x 4 = 16 so there are 16 quarts in 4 gallons.

Now, if you know the number of pints you have but you need to convert that into gallons, you would then divide. For example, if you have 144 pints and there are 8 pints in a gallon, you would then divide 144 by 8 or 144 ÷ 8 = 18 so your 144 pints equals 18 gallons.

If you have 144 quarts and you need to convert to gallons, you would divide 144 quarts by 4 because there are 4 quarts in one gallon. Therefore, 144 ÷ 4 = 36 so your 144 quarts equals 36 gallons.

1.

15 quarts =____ pints

120

60

30

90

There are 2 pints in 1 quart so we need to multiply 15 quarts by 2 pints or 15 x 2 = 30. 15 quarts = 30 pints. Answer (c) is the correct answer

2.

200 gallons = ____ pints

400

800

1200

1600

There are 8 pints in 1 gallon so we need to multiply 200 gallons by 8 pints or 200 x 8 = 1600. 200 gallons = 1600 pints. Answer (d) is the correct answer

3.

100 gallons = ____ quarts = ____ pints

200 quarts = 400 pints

400 quarts = 800 pints

800 quarts = 1600 pints

1600 quarts = 3200 pints

There are 4 quarts in 1 gallon so we need to multiply 100 gallons by 4 quarts or 100 x 4 = 400. 100 gallons = 400 quarts. There are 2 pints in 1 quart so we need to multiply 400 quarts by 2 pints or 400 x 2 = 800. 400 quarts = 800 pints. So 100 gallons = 400 quarts = 800 pints. Answer (b) is the correct answer

4.

47 gallons = _____ quarts

94

12

376

188

There are 4 quarts in 1 gallon so we need to multiply 47 gallons by 4 quarts or 47 x 4 = 188. 47 gallons = 188 quarts. Answer (d) is the correct answer

5.

19 gallons = ____ pints

76

38

114

152

There are 8 pints in 1 gallon so we need to multiply 19 gallons by 8 pints or 19 x 8 = 152. 19 gallons = 152 pints. Answer (d) is the correct answer

6.

8 quarts = ____ pints

12

32

16

24

There are 2 pints in 1 quart so we need to multiply 8 quarts by 2 pints or 8 x 2 = 16. 8 quarts = 16 pints. Answer (c) is the correct answer

7.

132 pints = ____ quarts

246

66

33

22

There are 2 pints in 1 quart so we need to divide 132 pints by 2 pints or 132 ÷ 2 = 66. This tells us that 132 pints = 66 quarts. Answer (b) is the correct answer

8.

64 pints = ____ gallons

8

32

24

10 gallons 4 pints or 10 gallons 2 quarts

There are 8 pints in 1 gallon so we need to divide 64 pints by 8 pints or 64 ÷ 8 = 8. This tells us that 64 pints = 8 gallons. Answer (a) is the correct answer

9.

860 quarts = ____ gallons

215

1720

108

430

There are 4 quarts in 1 gallon so we need to divide 860 quarts by 4 quarts or 860 ÷ 4 = 215. This tells us that 860 quarts = 215 gallons. Answer (a) is the correct answer

10.

28 gallons = _____ quarts

7

112

224
