We know that 8 tablespoons of butter = 1/2 cup. Let x be the number of tablespoons in 1/3 cup.

(1/3)/(1/2) = x/8

1/3 * 2/1 = x/8

8*(2/3) = (x/8)*8

16/3 = x

5 1/3 = x

Therefore, 1/3 cup of butter is 5 1/3 tablespoons.

There are 16 tablespoons in a cup of anything (doesn't matter if it's butter, milk or sand).

1/3 of 16 is 5.33

A US cup is 16 tablespoons.

.33 cup is therefore 5.28 tablespoons (or about 5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon)

5.28 tbsp

1 cup = 16 tablespoons

1 tablespoon = 0.06 cup

Well, one stick of butter is half cup. So if u cut your stick of butter into 3 equal pieces, 2 of them will make one third cup.(this is where learning fraction in school helps ......lol)

1tbsp is 15 gm. One cup is 250 gm. So 1/3 of a cup is 5.5 tablespoons.

That is not quite right. 2.5 + 2.5 +2.5 = 7.5

I'm thinking it should be 2 and 2/3 tablespoon
