equivalencies
Equivalencies
  • 3 t = 1 T
  • 2 T = 1 oz.
  • 4 T = ¼ cup
  • 5 1/3 T = 1/3 cup
    • 5 T + 1 t = 1/3 c
  • 10 2/3 T = 2/3 cup
    • 10 T + 2 t = 2/3 c

How many T = 1 cup?

equivalencies1
Equivalencies
  • 1 gal. = 4 qt.
  • 1 qt. = 2 pt.
  • 1 pt. = 2 c.
  • 1 c. = 8 oz.
equivalencies fluid ounces
Equivalencies – fluid ounces

For Liquids:

  • 1 c = 8 oz.
  • 1 pt = 2 c = 16 oz.
  • 1 qt = 2 pt = 4 c = 32 oz.
  • ½ gal = 2 qt = 4 pt = 8 c =64 oz.

Figure it out!

  • 1 gal = __ qt = __ pt

= __ c = __ oz

equivalencies pounds
Equivalencies - pounds
  • 1 lb = 16 oz.
  • 1 lb butter=2 cups = 4 sticks

How much is in one stick?
