One cup of sugar to one cup of water; 8 lbs of sugar to a gallon of water; 25 lb bag of sugar to 3 gallons of water; 100 lbs sugar to 12 gallons water.

as much as you can dissolve in hot water, I can get 5 pounds in a gallon easy

It's about 9 cups of each will make a gallon. I use a 4lb sack with 8 cups of water and it makes dang near a gallon.

If you weigh a pint of water it is close to a pound. If you weigh a pint of sugar it's a pound or close enough.

At the U of MN course, we were told the rough approximation is:

container 1/2 full of sugar, then fill with water = 1:1 (light syrup),

container full of sugar, then fill with water = 2:1 (heavy syrup).

I haven't had any formal complaints from the girls yet, using this rule of thumb...

My 2:1 mix is a half gallon of water and 8 lbs of sugar. When mixed it makes a gallon
