Answer

$\frac{3}{8}$

Work Step by Step

We can write the given ratio as a fraction and then simplify in lowest terms. We know that there are 2 pints in 1 quart, so we can write 4 quarts as $(4\times2)=8$ pints. $\frac{3pints}{8pints}$ Since both the denominator and numerator have the same unit, we can divide out the common unit. $\frac{3}{8}$ This fraction cannot be simplified, so the ratio is in simplest terms.
