    if you can find a ratio of what your looking to convert from and to, its just a matter of multipling by the ration

    .5 liters x quarts ------- * ------- 1 1 liter .5 liters 1.057 quarts ------- * ----------- 1 1 liter the liter and liter cancel; and your left with just: .5 * 1.057 quarts

    the calculator says that equals .5285 quarts then which is good since they are about the same to begin with

    the ration itself is a form of a value of "1"

    pts arent liters or quarts so it doesnt help us get to an end goal

    what is the conversion of 5 eggs in seashells? if the conversion rate is 3 eggs = 20 seashells we get: 5 eggs 20 seashells ------ * ----------- 1 3 eggs which the "eggs" cancel and we are left with 5*20/3 seashells for a conversion

    once you got a ratio for conversion; make sure the bottom cancels out the top :)
