Well, Google says 1 fluid ounce = 0.0078125 gallons.

Make an equation.

17h = amount of liquid leaked.

There are 24 hours in a day.

So 17*24=408

408 fluid ounces.

Convert that into gallons and you get 3.1875 gallons.

The pipe would leak 3.1875 gallons per day.

(Did I get this explanation wrong?)
