How many teaspoons in a tablespoon?
The answer is simple: there are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon. No matter if you’re using metric or US measures – if you’re sticking to Imperial, there are always three teaspoons in a tablespoon:
1 tsp (5ml) * 3 = 1 tbsp (15ml)
1 US tsp (4.93ml) * 3 = 1 US tbsp (14.79ml)
Be careful, though – staying in the US doesn’t exactly mean that you’ll find only US teaspoons there. For example, in nutritional labeling and medicine, the teaspoon always has 5 ml, which is simply the metric teaspoon.
But how many teaspoons are in a cup?
There are 16 tablespoons in a cup. Knowing that one tablespoon equals exactly three teaspoons, all we need to do is the multiplication:
1 tbsp = 3 tsp
1 cup = 16 tbsp = 16 * 3 tsp = 48 tsp
So we quickly found out that there are 48 teaspoons in one cup.
