I have a recipe that calls for 12 ounces of butter. Unfortunately, I only have a teaspoon to measure my butter. A tablespoon holds 1/2 ounce of butter, and there are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon. How many teaspoons of butter do I need for my recipe?
A tablespoon holds 1/2 oz of butter
So....we need 12 / (1/2) = 24 tablespoons
But.....there are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon....so....we need 24 x 3 = 72 teaspoons
