# CUSTOMARY UNITS OF CAPACITY

Capacity can be defined as the amount of space occupied by an object. It is also known as volume.

Here we have listed out some of the customary units using for capacity.

1 gallon = 4 quarts

1 quart = 2 pints

1 pint = 2 cups

1 cup = 8 fluid ounces

1 fluid ounce = 2 tablespoons

1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons

Note :

• When we convert larger unit to the smaller unit, we have to multiply.
• When we convert smaller to the larger unit, we have to divide.

Problem 1 :

72 gallons = ______ pt

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 quarts

1 quarts = 2 pints

gallon --> quart --> pint

Larger unit to the smaller unit, so we have to multiply.

72 should be multiplied by (4 x 2)

72 gallons = 72 x (4 x 2) pints

= 576 pints

Problem 2 :

72 gallons = ______ qt

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 quarts

gallon --> quart

Converting larger unit to the smaller unit, so we have to multiply by 4.

72 gallons = 72 x 4 qt

= 288 qt

Problem 3 :

52 cups = ______ gallon ___ cups

Solution :

1 ga = 4 qt

1 qt = 2 pt

1 pt = 2 c

cups ---> pints --> quart --> gallon

Converting smaller unit to the larger unit, so we have to divide by (4 x 2 x 2)

= 52 / (4 x 2 x 2)

= 52 / 16

= 3 x 48 + 4

= 3 gallons and 4 cups

Problem 4 :

124 cups = ______ pt

Solution :

1 pt = 2 cups

We convert smaller unit to the larger unit, we have to divide by 2.

= 124/2

= 62 pt

Problem 5 :

148 pt = ______ qt

Solution :

1 quarts = 2 pints

We convert smaller unit to the larger unit, we have to divide by 2.

= 148/2

= 74 qt

Problem 6 :

17 gallon = ______ qt

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 quarts

We convert larger unit to the smaller unit. So, we have to multiply it by 4.

= 17 x 4

= 68 qt

Problem 7 :

84 qt = ___ gallons

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 quarts

We convert smaller unit to the larger unit. So, we have to divide it by 4.

= 84 / 4

= 21 gallons

Problem 8 :

90 qt = ___ gallons ____  qt

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 quarts

We convert smaller unit to the larger unit. So, we have to divide it by 4.

= 90 / 4

= 22 x 4 + 2

= 22 gallons 2 qt

Problem 9 :

69 pt = ___ gallons ____  pt

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 quarts

1 quart = 2 pints

We convert smaller unit to the larger unit. So, we have to divide it by (4 x 2)

= 69 / 8

= 8 x 8 + 5

= 8 gallons 5 pints

Problem 10 :

132 cups = ______ qt

Solution :

1 qt = 2 pints

1 pint = 2 cups

We convert smaller unit to the larger unit, we have to divide by (2 x 2)

= 132/4

= 33 qt

Problem 11 :

98 qt = ______pt

Solution :

1 qt = 2 pints

We convert larger unit to the smaller unit, we have to divide by 2.

= 98 x 2 pt

= 196 pt

Problem 12 :

51 gallon = ______qt

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 qt

We convert larger unit to the smaller unit, so we have to multiply by 4.

= 51 x 4

= 204 qt

Problem 13 :

81 cups = ______qt ___ cups

Solution :

1 qt = 2 pints

1 pint = 2 cups

We convert smaller unit to the larger unit, so we have to divide by (2 x 2).

= 81 / 4

= 20 x 4 + 1

= 20 qt 1 cup

Problem 14 :

37 qt = ______cups

Solution :

1 qt = 2 pints

1 pint = 2 cups

We convert larger unit to the smaller unit, so we have to multiply by (2 x 2).

= 37 x (2 x 2)

= 37 x 4

= 148 cups

Problem 15 :

22 gallons  = ______pt

Solution :

1 gallon = 4 quart

1 quart = 2 pints

We convert larger unit to the smaller unit, so we have to multiply by (4 x 2).

= 22 x (4 x 2)

= 22 x 8

= 176 pt
