A gallon(gal) is a unit of capacity and is used to measure very large volumes of liquids.
A pint(pt) is also a unit of liquid or dry capacity equal to one eighth of a gallon.
Formula to convert gal to pt.
From the definition we are told that a pt is equal to one eighth of a gallon. Therefore, we can say that;
1 pint is equivalent to 0.125 gallons.
In conclusion, to convert pt to gal, we multiply the gal by 0.125 or simply divide the pt by 8.
Capacity in gal = Capacity in gal x 0.125
Convert 32 pints to gallons.
= 32 x 0.125
= 4 gallons.
