8 cups equals how many quarts?

##8″ cups” = 2″ quarts”##

When I was fairly young I was taught to mindlessly recite: ##color(white)(“XXX”)##2 cups, 1 pint; ##color(white)(“XXX”)##2 pints, 1 quart; ##color(white)(“XXX”)##4 quarts, 1 gallon.

From which it follows that there are ##4## cups in ##1## quart and therefore ##8## cups in ##2## quarts.
