According to the United States system of measurement, six tablespoons equals three-eighths of a cup. According to this concept, a full cup contains sixteen tablespoons. The English system of measurement includes teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, and pints.
The United States is one of just three nations that employ this measurement system. Except for Liberia and Myanmar, the remainder of the world utilises the European or metric system of measuring. In the metric system, metres, grammes, and litres are units of measurement. 1 tablespoon in metric is equivalent to 15 millilitres in American measures (ml). A full U.S. cup is comparable to 250 ml.
