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

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
