Measuring Cup (how to use)

Sharing buttons:

hello alright a measuring cup day all

right so this is all something you're

going to need throughout your life

especially if you want to bake or cook

or anything so as you can see I put them

so they're all kind of spread out but

you can see the writing on each of them

so this bottom one is the biggest

measuring cup that there is and that's

the one cup okay these are the small

ones that you have in your drawer and

then you have the half cup and half cup

and a half cup make one full cup think

about the rules of fractions so this is

kind of like the video you are watching

and understanding okay

so 1/2 plus 1/2 equals one whole okay so

one whole cup and then 1/2 plus 1/2

equal as a whole okay now as you can see

the next size would be the third cup 1/3

cup so if you need to measure stuff with

third cups we have 1/3 plus 1/3 that's

2/3 but if you add another third to it

that equals one whole cup so it takes

three of that size ok so three of these

to make one of those it took two of this

one to make one of the big ones

ok now the smallest of the measuring

cups is the fourth cup okay so the

fourth cup on it so we have 1/4 plus 1/4

that equals 2/4 which equals 1/2 so this


two of this Cup makes that Cup

okay another way of looking at the

fourths is moving my for this up is 1/4

plus 1/4 plus 1/4 plus one more fourth

equals one whole so looking at the

measuring cups it takes this small 1/4

of these to make one of those big cups

so if somebody asks you to make 1/2 cup

and your half cup this one is dirty you

could use two of the fourth cups see 2/4

cup equals 1/2 cup okay if you had a

dirty full cup you could use two of your

half cups if you needed a whole cup you

could use four of your fourth cups or if

you needed a full cup you could do free

of your third cups okay if something

calls for two thirds you just do two of

your one thirds if something calls for

3/4 you use three of your one for its

you don't eyeball it and say oh it's

roughly up to here so it's good enough

no you need 3/4 use three of those you

need two thirds use two of those if you

need 1/2 use 1/2 if you don't have the

1/2 because it's dirty use

the one fourths okay cuz 1/4 plus 1/4

equals 1/2 that is my version of

measuring cups and as always this is
