#### How many cups in a pint?

The Volume units' conversion factor of pints to cups is 2.

1 Pint (Fluid, US) = 2 Cups (US)

1 Pint (Dry, US) = 2.327294388 Cups (US)

1 Pint (UK, Canada) = 2.273045 Cups (Metric)

Therefore, there are 2 US cups in one fluid pint and 2.273045 metric cups in one imperial pint.

If you want to determine the number of cups in a pint, simply multiply the value in pints by the conversion factor.

In both the imperial and US customary systems, a cup is equal to a half of a pint. Since the metric cups replaced the imperial cups, the 1 cup in the UK standard is less than a half of a pint (0.439938).
