# Math - Measuring in Spanish!

This Spanish Medium Review quiz you will take a look at measuring in Spanish. To begin with, you have now learned how to count in Spanish.

Now you will have one more math quiz to delve into and that is how to measure things in Spanish.

Measuring includes distances such as inches and miles. It also includes quantities such as cups or gallons. The measurements can be either in their English form of measuring or in their Metric form of measuring. So let’s take a look as some of the more basic forms of measuring.

1.

5.
She had to pick up six GALLONS of milk for the daycare.
galónes
gallones
galones
galóns
To find the correct answer here you need to know the correct spelling. The Spanish word for gallon is galón. When a word has an accent mark in the last syllable and that word is then made plural, the accent mark is dropped. Therefore, there should be no accent mark in the pluralized word. The first and last answers show an accent mark so they are not correct. In Spanish, only one L is in the word. The second answer shows two L’s so it is not correct. The third answer shows the correct spelling and translation for the word gallons.
6.
