Before discussing how to convert qt to gallons, lets define them first. Both a gallon(gal) and quarts(qt) are units of capacity. A gallon is used to measure very large volumes of liquids.

Three kinds of quarts are currently used: the liquid quart and dry quart of the US customary system and the imperial quart of the British imperial system. All are roughly equal to one liter.

### Formula to convert Quarts to Gallons.

To convert qt to gal, we need to know how they are related.

We say that 1 quart is equal to 0.25 US quarts.

Therefore, to convert qt to gal, we multiply the qt by 0.25 or simply divide the qt by 4.

**Capacity in gal = Capacity in qt x 0.25**

**Example 1:**

Convert 28 quarts to gallons.

**= 28 x 0.25**

**= 7** **gallons**.

**Example 2:**

Convert 2 qt to gallons.

**= 2 รท 4**

**= ^{1}/_{2} gallons.**
