### Understanding Liters and Gallons

**Liters**are often used around the world to measure liquids, especially in countries that use the metric system.**Gallons**are mainly used in the United States to measure things like gasoline or how much water is in your garden hose.

### Converting Liters to Gallons

To figure out how many **gallons** are in **liters**, we can use a simple formula. One **liter** is about **0.264 gallons**. So, if we want to find out how many gallons are in **45 liters**, we can do some math:

\text{Gallons} = \text{Liters} \times 0.264

$$

Plugging in **45 liters**:

$$

\text{Gallons} = 45 \times 0.264 \approx 11.88 \text{ gallons}

$$

So, **45 liters** is about **11.88 gallons**!
