Cooking is the process of making food ready to eat. By adding or mixing some ingredients, we can make a tasty recipe. Each recipe has a list of some ingredients and steps explaining how to make that recipe.

Measuring the amount of each ingredient is crucial to make a tasty recipe. We can measure the components by using Measuring cups and spoons. There are various types of measuring cups and spoons available for cooking.

## Question 1:

1. One Glass of Lemon Juice Had 1 Tbsp Sugar. How Many Tbsp of Sugar Need To Make 4 Glasses of Lemon Juice
2. One Cup of Tea Had 2 Tsp Sugar. How Many Tsp of Sugar Need To Make 3 Cups of Tea?
3. Five Cups of Flour Fill One Jar. How Many Cups of Flour Can Fill 4 Jars?

1. One glass of lemon juice = 1 tbsp sugar.
2. 4 glass of lemon juice = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4 tbsp sugar

3. One cup of tea = 2 tsp sugar.
4. 3 cups of tea = 2 + 2 + 2 (2 is repeated 3 times)
3 cups of tea = 2 Ã— 3 = 6 tsp sugar

5. 5 cups of flour = 1 jar
4 jars = 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 (Number 5 is repeated 4 times)
4 jars = 5 Ã— 4 = 20 Cups

## Question 2:

Tina Made 6 Cookies for His Friends. She Used One Cup of Flour and 2 Tbsp Sugar for Each Cookie.

1. How Many Cups of Flour Are Needed To Make 6 Cookies?
2. How Many Tbsp of Sugar Are Needed To Make 6 Cookies?
3. 1 Tbsp (Tablespoon) = 3 Tsp (Teaspoon). How Many Teaspoons of Sugar Did She Use for 1 Cookie?
4. How Many Tsp of Sugar Is Needed To Make 6 Cookies?

Tina made 6 cookies for his friends. She used one cup of flour and 2 tbsp of sugar for each cookie.

1. 1 cookie = 1 cup of flour
6 cookies = 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 6 cups of sugar
6 cups of flour are needed to make 6 cookies.
2. 1 cookie = 2 tbsp sugar
6 cookies = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2
6 cookies = 2 Ã— 6 = 12 tbsp sugar
12 tbsp of sugar is needed to make 6 cookies.
3. Tina used for 1 cookie = 2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp (Tablespoon) = 3 tsp (Teaspoon)
2 tbsp (Tablespoon) = 3 + 3 = 6 Teaspoon
6 teaspoons of sugar are used for 1 cookie.
4. 1 cookie = 6 tsp sugar
6 cookies = 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6
6 cookies = 6 Ã— 6
6 cookies = 36 teaspoons of sugar

Tina needed 36 tsp of sugar to make 6 cookies.

4 is the biggest number. Mihir eats more sandwiches.
3. 1 is the smallest number. Kajal eats the least sandwiches.
4. In 1 sandwich = 4 carrot slices used
Mihir eats = 4 sandwiches
In 4 sandwiches = 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 (Repeated addition)
In 4 sandwiches = 4 Ã— 4 = 16 carrot slices
Vishal added 16 carrot slices to Mihirâ€™s sandwiches.
5. Ninad eats = 3 sandwiches
Mihir eats = 4 sandwiches
