### How many TBSP in two thirds of a cup?

the standard equivalency is
1 cup (3/3 of a cup)=16 Tbs
1 Tbs=3 tsp
1 tsp=1/3 of a Tbs
now let's do the math to answer the question.:
1/3 cup [16 Tbs divided by 3]=5.3 tbs or 5 Tbs plus 1/3 of a
Tbs.
since 1/3 of a Tbs = 1 tsp
then, 1/3 of a cup=5 Tbs plus 1 tsp
so 2/3 of a cup [1/3+1/3]=10 Tbs plus 2 tsp.
this applies to both dry and fluid measurements because cups and
tablespoons are volume measures.
fluid oz however are a different story.
