# What is 1/8 of a gallon?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking to find out how much liquid is equivalent to one eighth of a gallon. This involves understanding the conversion from gallons to a smaller measurement, such as quarts or pints.

One eighth of a gallon is $0.5$ quarts, $1$ pint, or $16$ fluid ounces.

One eighth of a gallon is $0.5$ quarts, which is also equivalent to $1$ pint or $16$ fluid ounces.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Identify the conversion rate
We need to know how many quarts, pints, or fluid ounces are in a gallon.
1 gallon = 4 quarts

2. Calculate one eighth of a gallon in quarts
To find one eighth of a gallon:
$$\text{One eighth of a gallon} = \frac{1}{8} \times 1 \text{ gallon} = \frac{1}{8} \times 4 \text{ quarts}$$
Now, perform the multiplication:
$$\frac{1}{8} \times 4 = \frac{4}{8} = \frac{1}{2} \text{ quarts}$$

3. Convert quarts to pints (if needed)
If you prefer the answer in pints, remember that:
1 quart = 2 pints
So, we convert:
$$\frac{1}{2} \text{ quarts} \times 2 \text{ pints/quart} = 1 \text{ pint}$$

4. Convert to fluid ounces
If you want the answer in fluid ounces, remember:
1 quart = 32 fluid ounces
So, for our answer in fluid ounces:
$$\frac{1}{2} \text{ quarts} \times 32 \text{ fluid ounces/quart} = 16 \text{ fluid ounces}$$

One eighth of a gallon is $0.5$ quarts, which is also equivalent to $1$ pint or $16$ fluid ounces.
