How many teaspoons in a tablespoon (cup, ounce, quart, pint)

Tablespoons were present since a long time but they did not get their name until the 1700s. It got its name from Europe. It was a must for the people of Europe to bring their own spoon to the table to eat every time they ate. It was like students taking pen to school or us carrying our bags when we go out. After that, when it was troublesome for people to carry their spoon to the table, they decided to place it there even before they came to eat. Now, you can find at homes and restaurants that there are spoons, forks and knives placed even before anybody came to eat. Thus, they got the name tablespoon. There were table fork and table knife but nobody uses these terms now. One by one, many dishes came along. They all had their own name, tea spoon, coffee spoon etc. Later on, the spoon was used to measure spices and ingredients for cooking. Now there is no hyphen in the middle of its name. Previously, it was table-spoon now they are tablespoon.

The tablespoon is written as tbsp. When there is a smaller amount it is written as tsp. it is also written as Tbsp. For example, you can 3 tbsp. of ginger paste and 30 Tbsp. of yoghurt. The US and many other places state the tablespoon as 1⁄2 US fl. Oz. (2 tbsp. = 1 US fl. oz.). In Australia, a tablespoon is well-defined as four teaspoons (20 mL). Edwardian and Victorian tablespoons used in the UK are often 25 mL or sometimes larger.

Let us see how to find tablespoons in a cup.

We know, 1 cup = 8 fluid oz.

1 cup = 236 ml (29.6 ml = 1 oz.)

1 oz. = 2 tbsp.

8 oz. = 8 × 2 = 16 tsp.

Now we know 16 tsp. is 1 cup so it is easy to find out the rest. Quarter is 0.25. To find tsp. in a quarter cup, multiple 0.25 with 16.

16 × 0.25 = 4 tsp.

Half is also written as 0.5

16 × 0.5 = 8 tsp.

Third of a cup is (1/3). Multiply this with 16 and you get the result which is 5.33333333 you can round it up to 5.3 tbsp.
