So, the **half of a US gallon** (US gal) is nearly 1.89 liters.

**1 Imperial gallon** $= 4.546092$ liters

So, **the half of a standard imperial gallon** (imp gal) is approximately 2.27 liters.

Relationship of a gallon with other customary units is shown in the following image.

In summary, we can write

**1 gallon** $= 4$** quarts**

$= 8$** pints**

$= 16$** cups**

$= 32$** gills **

$= 128$** fluid ounces**

We use these measurements to get the relationship between half a gallon and customary units.

### Divide by 2!

1 US liquid gallon $= 3.785412$ liters

So, the half of a US gallon (US gal) is nearly 1.89 liters.

One liter is equivalent to a cubic decimeter.

So, 1 liter $= 1; text{dm}^{3}$

1.89 liter $= 1.89; text{dm}^{3}$

**Half a gallon** $= 1.89; text{liter} = 1.89; text{dm}^{3}$
