Daniel needs three pints of milk to make a casserole, and he has five cups of milk. How many more cups of milk does he need?

In the United States, a cup is a standard unit of measure, and one cup is equal to 0.5 or half a pint. As Daniel currently has five cups of milk, we can multiply both of these by five to calculate how many pints he has. 0.5 multiplied by five or a half of five is 2.5. Therefore, five cups is equal to 2.5 pints. Daniel needs three pints of milk, and this will be equal to six cups.

As the question asked how many more cups of milk does Daniel need, the answer is one more cup.
