Edgar has a fountain that holds 5 quarts of water. He only wants to fill it 3/4 full. How many​ 1-pint containers does it take to fill the​ fountain? How could he fill it with pint and cup​ containers? Explain.

1 quart =  2 pints  =  4 cups

 

1 pint = 2 cups

 

1/2 pint =  1  cup    .....so.....

 

First question

 

5 quarts  =  10 pints

 

10 * (3/4)  =  7.5 pint   contianers   will fill it  3/4  full  

 

Second question

 

7.5   pints   =    7  pints   +  1 cup
