# math i don't get it

The lemonade recipe calls for 2 tablespoons or 1 ounce of food coloring for every gallon. How many cups of food coloring are there in 16 gallons of lemonade?

Please explain this a lot so i can get this.

There is one ounce of food coloring per gallon of lemonade. So...
There are 16 ounces in 16 gallons.

16 ounces of food coloring are two cups. You need to use the fluid ounces to cups conversion factor: (8 fl. oz. per cup)

1 ounce for 1 gallon.

16 ounces for 16 gallons

1 cup = 8 ounces
__ cups = 16 ounces

So does that means that there are 2 cups for 16 ounces but how many cups are for 16 gallons?

There are two cups of food coloring per 16 gallons of lemonade.

That means either there are 2 cups or 32 cups.

Which makes more sense to you?

i think 32 cups makes more sense
