Simple. 1 gallon = 4 quarts.

So 2 1/2 gallons = 10 quarts

You have 4 questions whose answers can be computed using RATIOS. You need to know how much of one unit of measure is equal to a certain number of the other unit of measure. You can find the "conversion" ratios in a good dictionary or encyclopedia. As a teacher, I resist giving answers, but try to teach HOW to do the problem. Then, in a new similar situation, you'll be able to do it yourself without help. In the present cases, 1 gal = 4 quarts, 1 centimeter = 10 millimeters, 1 mile = 5,280 feet, and 1 pound = 16 ounces. So: 2 1/2 gal would mean 2 1/2 (1 gal). Replace the quantity (1 gal) with its equivalent, (4 qts), and you get: 2.5 x 4 quarts, or 10 quarts. Similarly, in your second question, replace the quantity (1 cm) with (10 mm) and multiply to get your answer. Replace (1 mile) with (5,280 feet), then multiply., Lastly, replace (1 pound) for (16 ounces), and multiply. Since you replaced the old units (gal, cm, mi, pds), with the new units, (qt, mm,ft, oz), your final answers should be in the units you wanted. You can further compute to other units by doing more conversions. For instance, your answer to question #3 in now in feet. If you actually wanted inches, you would do another computation changing (1 foot) into (12 inches), and multiply. It easier to visualize replacing one larger unit of measure, like 1 foot, into a bunch of smaller sized units, like inches, it works the same way, only with fractions or decimals. For example, (1 foot = 1/5680 mile), so if you take your final answer in your original third problem, and replace (1 foot) with (1/5680 ft), you will return to the original question in miles. (to" multiply by 1/5680" is the same as "dividing by 5680"). Hope this helps. There'll be quiz in 10 minutes!
