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.

drwls,
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)

Ms. Sue,
1 ounce for 1 gallon.
16 ounces for 16 gallons
1 cup = 8 ounces
__ cups = 16 ounces

That means either there are 2 cups or 32 cups.
