Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

magnum  - 1.5 Litres

Jeroboam  - 0.792  US Galons

6 jeroboams = ? magnums

Lets convert the gallons in to litres

1 U.S gallon = 3.78541 Liters

1 Jeroboam has 0.792 Gallons

So it has 0.792 x 3.78541 = 2.998045 Liters

6 jeroboams are equivalent to  2.998045 x 6 = 17.98827 L

To get the ratio for the magnum we divide

= 17.98827 Liters Divided by a unit magnum which is 1.5 Liters

=17.98827 /1.5

= 11.99218  

Approximately 12 magnums
