Answer

28 qt.

Work Step by Step

Use the unit fraction $\frac{1 pint }{2 cups}$ to change pint to cups and the unit fraction $\frac{1 quart}{2 pint}$ to change pint to quart. Notice how all the units divide out except quarts, which is the unit you want in the answer. 112 c * $\frac{1 pint }{2 cups}$ * $\frac{1 quart}{2 pint}$ = 28 qt.
