IF C IS THE NUMBER OF CUPS THEN 1/2C CAN BE USED TO FIND THE NUMBER OF PINTS FOR 12 CUPS

8TH GRADE MATH 
Steve,
that is true. And the question is?
Oh, how about how many pints in 12 cups?
pints = 12cups * 1 pint/2cups = 6 pints
The trick is to remember that nothing changes when you multiply by 1. Just pick the units you want. In this case 1 = 1pt/2c
