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?
