# 8 cups equals how many quarts?

Apr 20, 2016

$8 \text{ cups" = 2" quarts}$

#### Explanation:

When I was fairly young I was taught to mindlessly recite:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}}$2 cups, 1 pint;
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}}$2 pints, 1 quart;
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}}$4 quarts, 1 gallon.

From which it follows that there are $4$ cups in $1$ quart
and
therefore $8$ cups in $2$ quarts.

8 cups equal 2 quarts.

#### Explanation:

1 quart$=$ 4cups

$x$ quarts$=$8cups

Look, 4 cups times 2 equals 8 cups.
So 1 cup times 2 will be 2 cups!

I hope that makes sense!

My source is my mind.
