    400 ml to cups

    If I were writing a recipe for Americans, how could I change 400 ml of water to cups? Since an American cup is 236,8 ml, how many cups are there in 400 ml? Am I supposed to change it to the nearest ml?

    Re: 400 ml to cups

    Since 400/236.8 = 1.69, that's closer to 1 2/3 cups.

    Is this really an English question? I can confirm as someone who likes to cook a lot that I'd have no idea what 400 ml looked like, but my measuring cups all have ML on one side and cups on the other, if that helps.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
