Understand that both cups and ounces are units of measurement for volume

Know that the number of ounces in a cup depends on the type of cup you are using.

The standard measuring cup used in cooking

and baking in the United States is 8 ounces

which is equivalent to 1 cup.

However, there are different types of cups used in different parts of the world

such as the Imperial cup, which is 10 ounces, and the Japanese cup, which is 6.7 ounces.

To convert cups to ounces

multiply the number of cups by the number of ounces in one cup.

For example, if you have 2 cups of milk

you would multiply 2 by 8 to get 16 ounces of milk.
