Have you ever wanted half a recipe? You need to measure 1/4 cup of flour, but your measuring cup is broken.

Keep in mind that many other measurements have been used and unit definitions have been amended; most countries' official measurement system is the present form of the metric system known as the "International System of Units."

Because other measurement systems, such as those used in the United States and the United Kingdom, are still in use around the world, this chart aims to assist people in converting units of measurement using the metric table, as well as better understanding alternative measurements that they are unfamiliar with.
