  1. My story:
    I was attending a seminar on Forestry one Saturday morning a few years ago. That was a couple of years before the rather large mosquito bit me and I developed West Nile Virus. I was in good spirits and health at the time of the seminar since I still had the good use of my legs.
    Well, back to the original story; but, not necessarily to the original question: There was a large, self-serve water dispenser to the right of the refreshment table. To the right of the water bottle was a one gallon trash can which was already overflowing with used paper cups. The clean, fresh cups were on the serving table.
    Since the trash can was already overflowing, I was in a bit of a quandary as to how I should proceed. Well, I thought, perhaps I could simply hold my paper cup and carry it around in my hands much as people do at a cocktail party. Perhaps, I could simply take the trash can and empty it. Then it dawned on me that if I simply tapped on the side of the trash can with my foot ( anybody still reading this?) and that paper cups would settle into each other (nest) and there would be space available for more trash.
    So that is exactly what I did. It took more than a couple of bumps to make enough space available; but, I kept trying. Picture this: me standing over the trash can, holding up the line with me kicking the can.
    Well, I am still alive these many years later with at least one thing unchanged: I’ m holding up the line and still kicking the can. One day soon I’ll be gone and the world will be much simpler.
    Now, answer to the original question as asked cannot be a simple number such as 16; the number of cups that go into the one gallon trash can depends entirely on how long you are kicking and how things settle out. Sorry, that’s it. Remember, it’s the journey and not the destination.

  2. to think in gallons/cups I will adapt to the imperial measurements which said that 1 cup was 8 fluid ounces. a gallon is 8 pints, a pint is 20 fluid ounces.
    so 8 gallon is 160 fluid ounces
    160/8 = 20
    there are 20 x 8 oz cups in a gallon

  3. in USA, 32 ounces = 1 quart and 4 quarts= 1 gallon. Therefore 32 ounces x 4 quarts = 128 ounces. So 128 divided by 8 ounce cups = 16 cups.
    The answer is 16 cups.

  4. 1 US gal = 128 US fluid oz.
    hence, 8 oz = (8/128)*1 = 0.06250 US gal.
    1 UK gal = 160 UK fluid oz.
    hence, 8 oz = (8/160)*1 = 0.0500 UK gal.

  5. Both gallons and fluid ounces are different in the US, Canada and Britain. Let’s assume you mean US gallons and fluid ounces. 1 gallon is 128 fluid ounces, so the number of cups will be 128/8 = 16.

  6. That depends on where you live. If in the United States, there are 128 fl oz in one US liquid gallon. That would make 16ea 8 fl oz cups.
    The Imperial (UK) gallon (4.546 L) is 20% more than the US gallon (3.785 L). However since the US cup is 236.588 ml and the Metric Cup (UK) is 250 ml, you would need 19 \frac{1}{5} metric cups in the UK.


  7. 8 oz = 1 cup
    2 cups = 1 pint
    2 pints = 1 quart
    4 qts = 1 gallon
    Now, if you multiply the numbers going down the left column (8x2x2x4) = 128 oz = 1 gallon
    128 divided by 8 = 16 (8 oz cups = 1 gallon)

  8. 16 8oz cups in a gallon if the liquid is emptied into the 1 gallon container.
    12 8oz cups if they are placed loosely inside a 1 gallon container.
    128 8oz cups if they are empty and stacked when put in the 1 gallon container.

  9. Which ounce? Which gallon? US standard ounces are about 29.57ml, imperial ounces are about 28.41ml. Several other definitions have existed historically, but those are the only two in common use. Imperial gallons are 160 imperial ounces, standard gallons 128 standard ounces. While cups were explicitly specified as 8 ounces (of indeterminate type), customary imperial cups are 10 imperial ounces.
    The various combinations work out to:

    How many 8 oz cups are in a gallon?

  10. If there is 20 fluid ounces in one impartial pint then there would be 2 1/2 x 8 ounce cups to the pint x 8 is 20 cups in one gallon.

  11. Question:-”How many 8 oz. cups are in a gallon?”
    A U.S. Customary gallon has 128 fluid ounces. The number of cups results from an easy division. An Imperial gallon is larger.

  12. A gallon is 128 ounces (oz)
    A cup is 8 oz
    So the number of cups in a gallon would be:
    (128 oz / 1 gallon) X (1 cup / 8 oz) = 16 cups / gallon
