### What are Liters and Quarts?

A **liter** is a way to measure **liquid**. Think of it like a big soda bottle; that’s about 1 liter. A **quart** is another way to measure liquid, and it’s a bit smaller than a liter. There are about 4 quarts in a gallon, which is a very big container.

### Converting Liters to Quarts

So, how do we change **5 liters** into **quarts**? We need to know that **1 liter** is equal to about **1.056 quarts**.

To find out how many quarts are in 5 liters, we can use this equation:

$$

5 \, \text{liters} \times 1.056 \, \frac{\text{quarts}}{\text{liter}} = 5.28 \, \text{quarts}

$$

So, **5 liters** is equal to about **5.28 quarts**.

### Why is This Important for Gardening?

When you’re gardening, you often need to measure how much water you’re giving to your plants or how much fertilizer to mix. Knowing how to convert between different measurements helps you get things just right!
