Introduction

In Europe, we use the metric system when we measure things, like milk and cream. 
In the United States, they use another system. In the American system they use:

Cups, Pints, Quarts, Gallons

to measure with.

16 tablespoons gives 1 cup.
2 cups gives 1 pint.
2 pints gives 1 quart.
4 quarts gives 1 gallon.

When they weigh things, they use ounces and pounds.

An ounce is about 28.35 grams and there are 16 ounces to a pound, which is about 453,6 grams.
