There are 80 size 8 ounce cups in a 5 gallon bucket.

If you were to use 8 ounce size cups to fill the 5 gallon bucket you would need 80 of those 8 ounce size cups to fill the 5 gallon bucket.

There are 648 ounces in 5 gallons.

So a 5 gallon bucket would contain 648 ounces.

It takes 16 cups of 8 ounce size to equal 1 gallon so to equal 5 gallons it would mean that there are 80 of those 8 ounce cups in a 5 gallon bucket.

if you have an 8 ounce cup then it would take 16 of those 8 ounce cups to equal 1 gallon.

There are always 128 ounces in 1 gallon.

So to find out how many cups it would take to make 1 gallon you need to know the size of cup you're using to equal a gallon.

Some cups are 8 ounces, some cups may be 16 ounces and if you do have a large enough cup that is 32 ounces then it would only take 4 of those 32 ounce cups to equal 1 gallon.

But for an average size 8 ounce cup it takes 16 of those 8 ounce cups to equal 1 gallon.

Just remember that 1 gallon contains 128 ounces.

So take the size of the cup in ounces and multiply that number by the amount it takes to make 128.
