Don't be dividing and multiplying willy-nilly. Be consistent and systematic. \(\dfrac{1.5\;cups}{1\;day}\cdot\dfrac{1\;gallon}{16\;cups}\cdot\dfrac{7\;days}{1\;week}\) Find all the units that cancel appropriately and it will tell you which to multiply and which to divide.

tkhunny has it right he uses a style called dimensional analysis so you know that you have \[\frac{ 1.5cups }{ 1 day }\] since you are leaking 1.5 cups in each day
