    Answer:

    Mrs. Lopez made 50 quarts of sweet tea

    Step-by-step explanation:

    A gallon and a quart are two of the five US standard volumes of measurement. In relation to litres, a quart is 946.352946 millilitres while a gallon is  3.7854118 litres.

    The relationship between The gallon and The quarts is given as 4:1

    This means that for every 4  quarts, there is 1 gallon.

    Now, let us find the number of quarts in 12¹/₂ gallons as follows:

    1 gallon = 4 quarts

    ∴ 12¹/₂ gallons = 12¹/₂ × 4 quarts

    converting the mixed fraction to improper fraction and multiplying:

    = ²⁵/₂ × ⁴/₁

    = \frac{25 \times 4 }{2 \times 1} = \frac{100}{2} \\\\= 50\ quarts
