Work Step by Step

28.6 L to quarts 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 = 1.06 quarts. Two unit fractions can be written using that information.(1 liter)/(1.06 quarts) Or(1.06 quarts)/(1 liter). Multiply by the unit fraction that allows you to divide out liter (that is, liter is in the denominator). 28.6 L * (1.06 quarts)/(1 liter) = 30.316 quarts = 30.3 qt (rounded)
