Hello William,

1LB = 454 grams. One stick is 1/4 LB or 113.5 grams and YES it's 8 tablespoons.

Measurements you'll come across that all weigh the same as one stick are:

4 ounce

1/2 cup

8 tablespoons

24 teaspoons.

Happy cooking / baking!

Generally, butter comes in 1 pound packages, with 4 sticks of butter that are 1/4 pound each. This is equilivant to 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons. The butter that I buy has tablespoon markings on the paper wrapping to make it easy to measure.
