00:00:01.250 --> 00:00:04.970
How many pints are there in 37 gallons?
00:00:08.490 --> 00:00:14.550
First, we should probably ask the question, “How many pints are in one gallon?”
00:00:16.840 --> 00:00:19.660
I always remember this by drawing a picture.
00:00:20.050 --> 00:00:21.340
Here’s our gallon.
00:00:23.120 --> 00:00:26.610
Inside our gallon, there are four quarts.
00:00:28.560 --> 00:00:31.840
Inside each quart is two pints.
00:00:33.520 --> 00:00:37.060
And inside each pint is two cups.
00:00:39.100 --> 00:00:44.930
But for this question, we’re only interested in how many pints are in one gallon.
00:00:46.850 --> 00:00:50.360
There are eight pints in every gallon.
00:00:50.700 --> 00:00:53.490
So one gallon equals eight pints.
00:00:55.470 --> 00:01:04.860
If there are eight pints per gallon and we have 37 gallons, we need to use multiplication.
00:01:05.240 --> 00:01:12.130
We need to multiply eight pints per gallon times the number of gallons we have, 37.
00:01:13.790 --> 00:01:17.500
We set up a multiplication problem, 37 times eight.
00:01:18.790 --> 00:01:20.690
Start all the way on the right.
00:01:20.720 --> 00:01:25.510
Multiply eight times seven, which is 56.
00:01:25.620 --> 00:01:29.550
We write down our six and carry our five.
00:01:30.960 --> 00:01:39.890
Moving on to the tens place, we say eight times three equals 24, plus five equals 29.
00:01:41.300 --> 00:01:43.260
We bring down our 29.
00:01:44.860 --> 00:01:51.130
37 times eight equals 296.
00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:56.380
This means that there are 296 pints in 37 gallons.
