When we talk about **liters** and **gallons**, we’re discussing ways to measure liquids, which is super important in gardening! **Liters** are used in many countries around the world, while **gallons** are more common in the United States.

In gardening, knowing how to convert between these two units can help us figure out how much water our plants need. For example, if you have a watering can that holds **0.4 liters** of water, you might want to know how many gallons that is.

To convert **liters to gallons**, we can use a simple equation. There are about **3.785 liters** in one gallon. So, to find out how many gallons are in **0.4 liters**, we can use the formula:

$$

\text{Gallons} = \frac{0.4 \text{ liters}}{3.785 \text{ liters/gallon}}

$$

If we do the math, we find that:

$$

\text{Gallons} \approx 0.1054 \text{ gallons}

$$

This means **0.4 liters** is a little over **0.1 gallons**. Now that we know this, we can better plan how much water to give our plants, depending on what measurement is easier for us!

Here are **7 objects** that are **exactly equal** to **0.4 liters**:

- A medium-sized water bottle
- A small juice container
- A large iced coffee cup
- A bowl of soup
- A can of soda
- A standard yogurt cup
- A small flower vase
