See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

There are 32 ounces in 1 quart, or:

$1 \text{ quart" = 32" ounces}$

We can find the number of ounces in 5 quarts by multiplying each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{5}$ giving:

$\textcolor{red}{5} \times 1 \text{ quart" = color(red)(5) xx 32" ounces}$

$5 \text{ quart" = 160" ounces}$

Therefore:

#5 quarts is greater than 159 fluid ounces
