For example are you suppose to find out how much is 5 gals, 4 pts, 8 gals then use PEMDAS to do the equation. for example 5 gals = 18.9271 Liter Google says. 4 Pints = 1.89271 Liter 8 gals = 30.2833 Liter 18.9271 + 1.89271  30.2833 20.81981  30.2833 = 9.463349 Am I correct?

What is the original problem? I doubt you should be converting to liters.

1st: are you serious? 2nd: if so, what grade are you in? 3rd: how many pints in a gallon?
