When you’re working in the garden, you might have to measure water to help your plants grow. Sometimes, we measure liquids in **milliliters (ml)** and sometimes in **gallons**.

First, let’s understand the two units of measurement:

**Milliliters**is a smaller unit, often used when measuring things like plant nutrients or small amounts of water.**Gallons**is a larger unit, which is commonly used for bigger quantities, such as when you’re watering lots of plants or filling up a storage tank.

To convert from **milliliters to gallons**, we can use a conversion fact: **1 gallon is about 3,785.41 milliliters**.

So to find out how many gallons are in **800 ml**, we need to do some math:

$$

\text{Gallons} = \frac{800 \text{ ml}}{3,785.41 \text{ ml/gallon}}

$$

When you do the calculation, you find out that:

$$

\text{Gallons} \approx 0.211 \text{ gallons}

$$

This means that **800 ml** of water is **about 0.211 gallons**.

Next time you’re measuring out water for your garden, remember that **800 ml** is a little less than a quarter of a gallon!

Here are **7 objects** that are **exactly equal to 800 ml**:

**A standard water bottle**(most hold about 800 ml).**A measuring cup**(if it goes up to 800 ml).**A large fruit juice carton**(like orange juice).**A soda bottle**(some 800 ml bottles are common).**A small soup can**(some are around 800 ml).**A yogurt container**(many come in that size).**A small plant watering can**(designed to hold specific amounts).

Now you can confidently measure water for your plants using different containers! 🌱
