    So first find how many mL (or \(cm^3\)), then convert that to L, then convert that to quarts. The definition of density is \(\sf density=\dfrac{mass}{volume}\) you're given density and mass, so find the volume. (I would suggest you rearrange the formula first, then plug your numbers in).

    the second step is incorrect, going from mL to L you divide by 1000 not by 0.001
