In gardening, we often need to measure different amounts of water or plant food. Today, let’s talk about how we can change **milliliters (ml)** into **gallons**, which is another way to measure liquid.

Here’s the cool part: there are **many** different units of measurement for liquids. One milliliter is a tiny amount, while a gallon is much larger. To find out how many gallons are in those 85 ml, we’ll do some math!

First, we need to know that:

**1 gallon**is equal to**3,785 milliliters**.

Now, to convert **85 ml** into gallons, we can use the following equation:

$$

\text{gallons} = \frac{85 \text{ ml}}{3,785 \text{ ml/gallon}}

$$

Calculating that gives us approximately:

$$

\text{gallons} \approx 0.0224 \text{ gallons}

$$

This means that 85 ml is a small fraction of a gallon!

For you to better understand this measurement, here are **7 examples of objects** that hold **exactly 85 ml**:

- A small
**shot glass**. - A single
**pack of ketchup**from a fast-food restaurant. - A
**small medicine cup**that you might use for cough syrup. - A standard
**espresso cup**. - A
**travel-sized shampoo bottle**. - About
**half of a small yogurt container**. - A
**small container of salad dressing**.

Next time you’re watering your plants or mixing fertilizers, you can think about how 85 ml is just a tiny bit when we talk about gallons! ðŸŒ±
