## How to Convert Imperial Gallons to Meters Cube

*Example: How many meters cube are equivalent to 8.75 imperial gallons?*

As;

1 imperial gallons = 0.004545 meters cube

8.75 imperial gallons = Y meters cube

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 8.75 times 0.004545 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 8.75 * 0.004545 / 1 = 0.03976875 meters cube

Answer is: 0.03976875 meters cube are equivalent to 8.75 imperial gallons.
