Equivalent Measures

I often find myself trying to remember equivalent measures.

For instance, my daughter likes 1 Tbsp of syrup on her waffles, but the serving size is 1/4 cup. Do I divide the number of carbs by three or four? (The answer is four.)

Use these tables when you need to figure out equivalents.
