Can anyone assist me ian writting a code for converting liters to pints and gallons,

I came up with this, however I can't seem to place it in a code.

 U.S. gallon = 3.7854 liters. One liter = .264 U.S. gallon.
The formula for converting liters to U.S. gallons is:
Liters ÷ 3.7854 = U.S. gallons
Convert U.S. gallons to liters with the formula:
U.S. gallons x 3.785 = liters

Hi jahsexy18,

if the formula you have given is correct then it would be something like this in vb

Dim usg As Double, lit As Double
If MsgBox("Do you want to convert liters to gallon", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
lit = InputBox("Enter quantity in liters: ", , 10)
usg = lit / 3.7854
MsgBox lit & " liters is equal to " & usg & " gallons"
usg = InputBox("Enter quantity in gallons: ", , 10)
lit = usg * 3.785
MsgBox usg & " gallons is equal to " & lit & " liters"
End If

It is a simple conversion, but, which programming language?

I don't see pints considerations in your formulas (I guess 1 pints = 1/8 gallon).

I am not sure I understand how this fit, can u please explain.  I have already created  auser interface, which has three labels

1. Input for liters
2. read only for pints
3. read only for gallons

Also I have two buttons one to reset and one to compute

My problem is writtin the code to convert liters to pint and gallons.

u get liters to pint when u multiply liters by 2.1134

to convert liters to gallons and pints:

gallons = fix(liters / 3.7854)
pints = (liters / 3.7854 - gallons) * 8
