1 quarts is equal to 2 pints, which is equal to 4 cups.

1 gallon is equal to 4 quarts, which is equal to 16 cups.

In the above image, we can observe

- 2 pints in the first diagram. So, we need to map it to 2 + 2 = 4 cups.
- 2 pints and 1 quarts in the second diagram. So, we need to map it to 2 + 2 + 4 = 8 cups.
- 1 gallon in the third diagram. So, we need to map it to 4 x 2 x 2 = 16 cups.
- 1 quarts and 3 cups in fourth diagram. So, we need to map it to 4 + 3 = 7 cups.
- 1 quarts and 1 pint in fifth diagram. So, we need to map it to 4 + 2 = 6 cups.
- 2 quarts and 2 pints and 2 cups. So, we need to map it to 4 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 14 cups.
