This answer is incorrect.

Let's just look at each of the conversions and see where you may have gone wrong.

• 96 cups = 6 gallons
• You know that each gallon equals 4 quarts therefore 6 gallons would be 24 quarts. Then each quart is 2 pints therefore 24 quarts is equal to 48 pints. And each pint is made up of 2 cups, therefore 48 pints would be 96 cups.
• Or you could have done the problem the other way. There are 2 cups in one pint. There are 2 pints in one quart so that means that there are 4 cups in one quart. There are 4 quarts in a gallon, therefore there are 16 cups in a gallon. Therefore there are 96 cups in 6 gallons.
• 9 days = 216 hours
• You know that each day has 24 hours. Therefore 9 days times 24 hours would be 216 hours.
• Since there are 24 hours in a day you can say that 216 hours divided by 24 hours is 9 days
• 84 ounces = 7 pounds
• There are 16 ounces in each pound, therefore 7 pounds times 16 ounces is 112 ounces. Therefore the conversation of 84 ounces = 7 pounds is incorrect.
• Since there are 16 ounces in each pound you could say that 84 ounces divided by 16 equals 5.25 pounds. Therefore the conversation of 84 ounces = 7 pounds is incorrect.
• 2 miles = 10,560 feet
• There are 5,280 feet to a mile, therefore 2 miles times 5280 feet is equal to 10,560 feet.
• Since there are 5,280 feet in a mile you could say 10,560 feet divided by 5,280 feet is 2 miles.
