Teaspoon to Tablespoons (How many tablespoons in a teaspoon?)

A teaspoon is a volume unit that is often used in cooking recipes and prescription. There are different types and sizes of teaspoons that are used as units of measurement. It is abbreviated as "tsp" or "ts" and one US teaspoon is equivalent to 1/6 fluid ounces and 5 milliliters. A tablespoon is a volume unit that is mostly used in cooking or recipes. It is abbreviated as "tbsp" or "tbs". One US tablespoon is equivalent to 0.5 fluid ounces, and 15 milliliters whereas in the Australian standard, it equals about 20ml.  Although these two are volume units, they measure different quantities and a tablespoon is known to be larger than the teaspoon.

When using the US, UK or Metric standards, one teaspoon is equivalent to 0.333 (1/3) tablespoon. For the Australian standard, one teaspoon is made up of 0.25 (1/4) tablespoon.


To determine the number of tablespoons in teaspoons, we multiply the value by the conversion factor. According to the standards shown above the conversion factor can be expressed as;

1 Teaspoon = 0.3333 (1/3) Tablespoon [US, UK or Metric]

1 Teaspoon = 0.25 (1/4) Tablespoon [Australia].

How many tablespoons are in a teaspoon?

The number of tablespoons available in a teaspoon will vary depending on the standard used or the conversion factor. First, you need to memorize that there are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon and that tablespoons are bigger than teaspoons. It helps you remember whether you should multiply or divide the value by the conversion factor. Using this concept, we can conclude that there are 1/3 tablespoons in one teaspoon expressed as;

1 Teaspoon = 1/3 Tablespoon

When converting from teaspoons (smaller measure) to tablespoons (larger measure), you divide the value by 3 so that you can end up with a smaller number.
