Can you show or help me with this problem: Aquaman drinks 48 ounces of water a day. How many pints of water is that a week? I know that 1 Cup=8oz and 1 pt=2 cups. What do I do?

  1. jolly rancher

    so if each cup is 8 ounces
    and a pint is 2 cups
    then there must be 2 x 8 = 16 ounces in each pint

    now aquaman drinks 48 ounces in 1 day
    so in 7 days he drinks 7 x 48 = 336 ounces per week

    now you just need to know how many pints are in 336 ounces

    so what's next?

    each pint is 16 ounces

    so divide 336 ounces per week by 16 ounces per pint:

    336/16 = ?

  2. mark

    The answer is 21pt

  3. jolly rancher

    yep - you are quite correct!
