## How to Convert Meters Cube to US Gallons

*Example: How many US gallons are equivalent to 86.74 meters cube?*

As;

1 meters cube = 264 US gallons

86.74 meters cube = Y US gallons

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

Y equals 86.74 times 264 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 86.74 * 264 / 1 = 22899.36 US gallons

Answer is: 22899.36 US gallons are equivalent to 86.74 meters cube.
