How to convert cups to pints

The cups to pints conversion is straightforward, which makes it easy to do it on the go, even when you find yourself in a situation where you can not use the converter.

The formula to convert from cups to pints is:

Pints= Cups×0.5\text{Pints} = \text{ Cups} \times 0.5

And if you feel you are not such a fan of multiplying decimals, then you may opt for the other version of the formula:

Pints= Cups2\text{Pints} = \frac {\text{ Cups}} {2}

For instance, you are making an ice cream cake that requires 3 cups of flour but 1 pint of ice cream. You would rather have both measurements in the same unit. And decide to convert the cups to pints.

So converting 3 cups to pints:

Pints=3×0.5\text{Pints} = 3 \times 0.5
Pints=1.5\text{Pints} = 1.5
