How many tablespoons are in 1/4 cup?

There are 4 tablespoons in 1/4 cup. This is because there are 16 tablespoons in a cup, and 1/4 of 16 is 4. So if you need to measure out 1/4 cup of a particular ingredient but only have a tablespoon on hand, you can simply use 4 tablespoons instead. It’s always useful to know these conversions when cooking or baking, as some recipes may call for measurements in cups or tablespoons rather than ounces or grams.
