Divide Gallons, Quarts, and Pints

Divide Gallons, Quarts, and Pints: Learn

Since there are 2 pints in a quart and 8 pints in a gallon, this is how to divide gallons, quarts, and pints:

  • Convert gallons-quarts-and-pints amounts to pints only. To do so, multiply the gallons by 8, multiply the quarts by 2, and then add all three pints values together for one pints-only amount.
  • Divide.
  • Convert the pints back to gallons, quarts, and pints:
    • Divide the pints by 8, where the quotient is the gallons and the remainder is the leftover pints.
    • Divide the remainder (leftover pints) by 2, where the quotient is the quarts and the remainder is the remaining pints.
  • The final answer should involve gallons, quarts, and the remaining pints.

Example: Multiply 9 gallons 1 quarts and 1 pint times 5:

  • Convert to pints-only: 9*8 + 1*2 + 1 = 75 pints
  • Divide: 75÷5 = 15 pints
  • Convert back:
    • 15÷8 = 1R7
    • 7÷2 = 3R1
  • Final answer: 1 gallon, 3 quarts, and 1 pint
