How Many Tablespoons in 1/4 Cups?
Tablespoons and cups are the most widely used units of measurement for cooking. Often these two are found in different cooking descriptions or recipes. Sometimes they need a comparison between them. Today’s article is about how many tablespoons are there in 1/4 cups.
First, we have to know how many tablespoons are there in a cup. The answer is 16 tablespoons.
One cup of an ingredient (dry or liquid) consists of 16 tablespoons of that ingredient. If you calculate 1/4 by multiplying it with 16, you’ll find the number of tablespoons in 1/4 cups.
1/4 cups = 1/4 * 16 tablespoons = 4 tablespoons.
The table below will help to give a more visual idea about the conversion.

The basic equation is to multiply the number in cups by 16. Any number can be converted into tablespoons with this equation. In case you need to do the reverse, you just divide the number by 16.
For example, if you need to calculate how many cups are there in 96 tablespoons of an ingredient, you’ll have to divide that number by 16.
96 tablespoons = 96 / 16 = 6 cups of ingredient
Both of the units are important to know because these are not something you can do cooking without. It’s better to know the comparison than check the internet every time you cook.
