    The answer is 13 1/7 (or 92/7) , and is already in units of cups.

    It could also be written 6/7 gallon.
    (One gallon = 16 cups)

    how do u get the 1/7? i cant figure out how to get it

    91/7 is 13.
    92/7 is 13 with 1/7 left over.

    You might also recognize that, in the decimal form, 0.1428... = 1/7

    sorry still stuck.. how do you do the math to get the 1/7

    i don't know where you got 91/7 either..can you show me how to write it on paper so i could figure it out.

    92/7 = 13 remainder 1
