1 litre = 1.75 pints imperial units?

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

Here are the equivalents. They are approximate.

1 litre = 1.75 pints imperial units?

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many pints are there in 4 litres?

1 litre = 1.75 pints imperial units?

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many gallons are there in 27 litres?

1 litre = 1.75 pints imperial units?

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many millilitres are there in8 tablespoons?

1 litre = 1.75 pints imperial units?

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

Approx 5 litres = 8 pints = 1 gallon

Remember a litre and a quarter is about a pint and three quaters

1 litre = 1.75 pints imperial units?

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

How many litres in 3 gallons

1 litre = 1.75 pints imperial units?

4.5 litres = 1 gallon

25 millilitres = 1 tablespoon

What might the conversion graph look like?

Group Work imperial units?

Work in pairs to draw a conversion graph for 1 gallon = 4.5 litres. Write six questions for your graph. Swap with another pair and find the answers to their questions.
