Gallons to cups conversion

Both gallons (US gals) and cups (c) are US customary volume units commonly used in our daily life. One US gallon is equivalent to sixteen cups:

  • 1 US gal ⇋ 16 c
  • 1 c ⇋ 1/16 US gal

That way, to convert gallons to cups, we should multiply the number of gallons by 16. And if we want to convert from cups to gallons, we should divide by 16 instead.

How many cups to a half-gallon?

8 cups (c) have the same volume as a half-gallon (US gal). Since one US gallon is equivalent to 16 cups, half a gallon would be half of that quantity, which is 8 cups.
