What? Scale them how? Do you have some sort of calculator?
Why convert to metric first? All you need to know are a few simple facts:
1 cup = 8 fluid ounces (i.e., volume ounces, not weight ounces)
1 fluid ounce = 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons
1 cup = 16 Tablespoons = 48 teaspoons
1 ounce = 6 teaspoons
In your example, 28 teaspoons divided by 48 = 28/48 = .58 of a cup.
It's just simple arithmetic -- what am I missing here?
