The capacity of a car’s fuel tank is 20 gallons / 20 pints.
The capacity of a car’s fuel tank is 8 pints.
Explanation:
We know that
1 gallon = 4 quarts
1 quart = 2 pints
First convert gallons into quarts.
20 gallons / 20 pints = (20 x 4) quarts / 20 pints
= 80 quarts / 20 pints
Convert quarts into pints.
= (80 x 2) pints / 20 pints
= 160 pints / 20 pints
= 8 pints

First convert quart into pints.
1 cup / 1 quart = 1 cup / (1 x 2) pints
= 1 cup / 2 pints
Next convert pints into cups.
1 cup / (2 x 2) cups = 1 cup / 4 cups
= 1/4 cups

Order from greatest capacity to least capacity. (Lesson 15.3)

Question 50.
6 pt 14 qt 2 gal
The order from the greatest capacity to least capacity is 14qt 2gal  6pt.
Explanation:
1 quart = 2 pints
1 gallon = 2 quarts
Convert quart into pints
14 quart = 14 x 2 pints = 28 pints
Convert gallons into pints
2 gallons = 2 x 4 x 2 pints = 16 pints
14qt > 2gal > 6pt

Question 51.
1 gal 18 c 10 pt
The order from the greatest capacity to least capacity is 10pt 18c 1gal.
Explanation:
1 pint = 2 cups
1 quart = 2 pints
1 gallon = 2 quarts
Convert gal into cups
1 gallon = 4 x 2 x 2 = 16 cups
Convert pints into cups
10 pints = 10 x 2 = 20 cups
10pt > 18C > 1gal
