Liquid solution ratio

I have a one gallon container. There are 4 qts. in a gallon. I need to mix a cleaning solution that requires 1 part solution to 5 parts water. How do I evenly fill my one gallon container with the solution/water mix? In other words how much of the quarts are water and how much are solution?

Re: Liquid solution ratio

You want about 630 milliliters of cleaning solution and about 3.15 liters of water in every gallon.

1 U.S. gallon ? 3.785411784 liters.

3.785411784/6 ? 630 milliliters.

The '6' is used because there are 5 parts water and 1 part cleaning solution for a total of 6 "parts".

Re: Liquid solution ratio

Pardon me; that's probably 1/5 * 3.785411784 ? 760 ml.
