To find out how many cups are in a gallon, given how many cups are in a pint, you need to multiply the number of cups in a pint by the number of pints in a quart and then the number of quarts in a gallon. The equation would look like this: cups in a pint x pints in a quart x quarts in a gallon = 2 x 2 x 4 = 4 x 4 = 16. The first part of equation - 2 x 2 (cups in a pint x pints in a quart) tells you the number of cups in a quart. Multiplying that by the number of quarts in a gallon - 4 x 4 - is the number of quarts in a gallon.
