Fluid ounces and pints are units of volume and capacity primarily used in the US and the UK. There have been other definitions of fluid ounces and pints in the past, but these definitions are two of the few that are still used.

Fluid ounces should not be confused with the ounce that refers to weight or mass. They are not related units.

Fluid ounces to pints conversion explanation

To convert from fluid ounces to pints in either the US customary or imperial systems of measurement, we first need to remember the relationship between the units in each system:

US customary system:

16 fl oz = 1 pt

1 fl oz = pt

Imperial system:

20 fl oz = 1 pt

1 fl oz = pt

Based on these relationships, we need to divide a fluid ounce in the US customary system by 16 to convert it to pints, and we need to multiply a pint by 16 to convert it to fluid ounces. The same follows for imperial fluid ounces and pints, except that we divide fluid ounces by 20, and multiply pints by 20.
