Answer

4.1 gal (rounded)

Work Step by Step

15.75 L to gallons We’re changing from a metric capacity unit to a U.S. capacity unit. In the “Metric to U.S. Units” side of the table, you see that 1 liter = 0.26 gallon. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 liter)/(0.26 gallon) Or(0.26 gallon)/(1 liter). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out liter (that is, liter is in the denominator). 15.75 L * (0.26 gallon)/(1 liter) = 4.095 gallon = 4.1 gal (rounded)
