What this calculator is for?

This calculator has been written with the difficulty that people who work with cooking recipes have in mind when converting non-metric units of volume (the English or the American system).

For example, suppose we have a particular recipe designed for 3 people where one of the measurements is half a 1/3 cup. If we want to resize this recipe to serve 1 person, how much will the new amount be in tablespoons or even teaspoons?

The simple answer is 1/3 divided by 3 = 1/9 cup or 0.1111 cups. Note that this measurement is too small to measure in cups. It would be better to change the unit to tablespoons or even teaspoons. So, after a bit of maths, we would get the value of 5 tablespoons plus one teaspoon (5 tbsp + 1 tsp). However, with our volume resizer, you would get this answer in seconds and feel much more confident about the results you get.
