The Volume units' conversion factor of cups to pints is 0.5.

1 Cup (US) = 0.5 (1/2) Pint (Fluid, US)

1 Cup (US) = 0.4296835 Pint (Dry, US)

1 Cup (Metric) = 0.439938 Pint (UK)

Therefore, there are 0.5 US fluid pints in one US cup and 0.439938 imperial pints in one metric cup. If you want to determine the number of pints in a cup, simply multiply the value in cups 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).
