  • First lets convert the pints to cups. 

    1 pint = 2 cups 
    12 pints = ? cups

    Now lets multiply to find out how many cups are in 12 pints. 

    12 × 2 = 24 
    24 cups in 12 pints.  

    Now lets look at the information we have.

    4 cups of water per 9 servings

    Now lets divide to see how many time 24 goes into 4.

    24 ÷ 4 = 6

    Now lets multiply:-

    6 × 9 = 54

    So, 54 servings of water fir in 12 pints of water.
