One fruit salad recipe requires 1/2 cup of sugar. Another recipe for the same fruit salad requires 2 tablespoons of sugar. If 1 tablespoon is equivalent to 1/16 cup, how much more sugar does the first recipe require?

Given

One fruit salad recipe requires = ½ cup of sugar

Sugar required for another salad = 2 

1 tablespoon is equivalent to 1/16 cup

Find out

We have to determine the amount of more sugar does the first recipe require?

Solution

One fruit salad recipe requires = ½ cup of sugar

Sugar required for another salad = 2 × (1/16) = 2/16 cup

Hence, the required sugar = ½ – (2/16)

= (8 – 2)/16

= 6/16

= 3/8 cup of sugar.

Answer

The amount of more sugar does the first recipe require=3/8 cup of sugar.
