# How many quarts are equivalent to 14 1/2 gallons?

Dec 1, 2015

$14 \frac{1}{2} \text{gal"="58 qt}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{4 qt=1 gal}$

Convert $14 \frac{1}{2}$ into an improper fraction. $\frac{\left(\left(2 \times 14\right) + 1\right)}{2} = \frac{29}{2} \text{gal}$

Multiply the improper fraction times the conversion factor with quarts in the numerator.

$\frac{29}{2} \cancel{\text{gal"xx(4"qt")/(1cancel"gal")="58 qt}}$
