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?
asked by
Mark

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 = ?
