To convert a pint measurement to a cup measurement, multiply the volume by the conversion ratio. One pint is equal to 2 cups, so use this simple formula to convert:

cups = pints × 2

The volume in cups is equal to the pints multiplied by 2.

For example, here's how to convert 5 pints to cups using the formula above.
5 pt = (5 × 2) = 10 c

Pints and cups are both units used to measure volume. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Pints

The US liquid pint is a unit of fluid volume equal to one-eighth of a gallon, one-half of a quart, or two cups. The liquid pint should not be confused with the dry pint (US) or the imperial pint, which are different units.

The pint is a US customary unit of volume. Pints can be abbreviated as pt, for example 1 pint can be written as 1 pt.

Cups

The cup is a unit of volume equal to 16 tablespoons or 8 fluid ounces. The cup should not be confused with the metric cup or the teacup, which are different units of volume. One cup is equal to just under 236.6 milliliters, but in nutrition labelling, one cup is equal to 240 milliliters.[1]

The cup is a US customary unit of volume. Cups can be abbreviated as c, and are also sometimes abbreviated as C. For example, 1 cup can be written as 1 c or 1 C.
