Normally there are 4 sticks of butter in a pound. A pound is equal to 454 grams. So two sticks would be equal to 227 grams.

Welcome Paolina! Each stick of butter is 4 ounces. You usually need 8 ounces of butter for a cake recipe. Your English is just fine.

welcome, paolina, to discusscooking.
a tbsp. is 14 grams. you get 8 tbsp. from a quarter. 4 quarters to a pound, so 32 tbsp. in 4 quarters, or 448 grams.
