$\frac{5}{2}$ pt or 2.5 pt
5 c = pt Use a unit fraction with pint (the unit for your answer) in the numerator, and cups (the unit being changed) in the denominator. Because 2 cups (c) = 1 pint (pt), the necessary unit fraction is $\frac{1 pt}{2 c}$ Multiply 5 c times the unit fraction. 5 * $\frac{1 pt}{2 c}$ =$\frac{5}{2}$ pt = 2.5 pt
