Please explain this a lot so i can get this.

**drwls**, Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 6:32pmThere 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 cup = 8 ounces

__ cups = 16 ounces
