How Much is Half of 3/4 Cup
The easiest way for us to measure half of 3/4 is to convert the measurement into tablespoons.
- 1 cup = 16 Tablespoons
- 1/2 cup = 8 Tablespoons
- 1/4 cup = 4 Tablespoons
Since 1/4 cup equals 4 tablespoons, we know 3/4 cup equals 12 tablespoons. Therefore, half of 3/4 cup is 6 tablespoons. This is the same as 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons.
Another way to find half of 3/4 cup is to convert it into a decimal.
- 3/4 cup = 0.75 cups
Half of 0.75 cups is 0.375 cups, which is fairly close to 1/3 cup (0.33 cups). If you are baking, we would not suggest using 1/3 cup as a measurement for half of 3/4 cup (baking is way too precise!), however, for dip recipes and general cooking, 1/3 cup will work just fine as a half of 3/4 cup.
