have a recipe that calls for $12$ ounces of butter. Unfortunately, I only have a teaspoon to measure my butter. A tablespoon holds $\frac12$ ounce of butter, and there are $3$ teaspoons in a tablespoon. How many teaspoons of butter do I need for my recipe?

you need 12 oz butter:

1 tbsp = 3 tsp

1 tbsp = 1/12 (\frac12 i guess?) oz butter

multipply 1/12 equation by 144 to get 12 oz butter so

144 tbsp = 12 oz butter

multiply 144 by 3 bc 1 tbsp = 3 tsp so

144 tbsp = **432** tsp

teaspoon = tsp

tablespoon= tbsp

oz = ounce
