Hey there! ðŸŒ¼ If you love **gardening**, you’re probably used to measuring things like water for your plants. Today, we’re going to learn about how to change the measurement of **liters** into **gallons**!

When we say **liters** (which is how we measure liquid in most places), we’re talking about a certain amount of space that the liquid takes up. For example, **3.0 liters** is a measure of liquid that you might use to water your flowers.

Now, in the United States, people often use **gallons** instead of liters. One gallon is a bigger measurement than a liter. In fact, one gallon is equal to about **3.78 liters**. So, if we want to change **3.0 liters** to gallons, we can do some math!

To do this, we can use the equation:

$$

\text{Gallons} = \frac{\text{Liters}}{3.78}

$$

If we put in **3.0 liters**, it would look like this:

$$

\text{Gallons} = \frac{3.0}{3.78} \approx 0.7937

$$

So, **3.0 liters** is about **0.79 gallons**. This means that when you’re watering your plants, if you have **3.0 liters** of water, you have just under a full gallon!

To help you visualize how much liquid that is, here are **7 objects** that are **exactly equal** to **3.0 liters**:

**3 standard-sized water bottles**(1 liter each)**6 soda cans**(0.5 liters each)**1 big milk jug**(3 liters)**1 large garden sprayer**(that holds 3 liters of liquid)**3 tetra packs of juice**(1 liter each)**1.5 medium-sized soup cans**(2 liters in total, but we will fill half of another can)**6 shot glasses**(each containing 0.5 liters)

So now you see how **liters** and **gallons** work, especially when it comes to taking care of your garden! ðŸŒ» Happy gardening!
