I don’t understand cups, but I have a set of them. The recipe says 100ml of olive oil, so I asked for help:

Conversion Challenge: Cups to Milliliters

Analysis: To convert cups to milliliters, we need to understand the volume each cup represents.

  1. 1 Cup:

    • Volume: 236.588 ml
  2. 1/2 Cup:

    • Volume: 118.294 ml
  3. 1/3 Cup:

    • Volume: 78.729 ml
  4. 1/4 Cup:

    • Volume: 59.147 ml
  5. 1/8 Cup:

    • Volume: 29.574 ml

Calculation: To obtain 100 ml using the available cups, we can explore various combinations:

  • Using 1 Cup: 236.588 ml (exceeds 100 ml)
  • Combining 1/2 Cup twice: 118.294 ml + 118.294 ml = 236.588 ml (exceeds 100 ml)
  • Combining 1/2 Cup and 1/4 Cup: 118.294 ml + 59.147 ml = 177.441 ml (insufficient)
  • Combining 1/3 Cup and 1/4 Cup: 78.729 ml + 59.147 ml = 137.876 ml (insufficient)
  • Combining 1/3 Cup and 1/8 Cup three times: 78.729 ml + 3 * 29.574 ml = 167.457 ml (insufficient)

Recommended Combination: The most suitable combination is using 1/2 Cup twice:

  • 118.294 ml + 118.294 ml = 236.588 ml

Conclusion: To achieve 100 ml, you can use two 1/2 cups.
