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?


The first recipe requires 1/2 cup of sugar.
the 2nd recipe requires 2 tablespoon of sugar

According to question
1 tablespoon =1/16 cup 
therefore, 2 tablespoons =2*(1/16)=1/8 cup
hence, more amount of sugar the 1st cup requires=  (1/2) - (1/8) cup
                                                                        =  3/8 cup
