Full Answer

If a recipe calls for butter in ounces, simply divide the number of ounces by 4 to arrive at the required number of sticks. If a recipe calls for butter in tablespoons, divide the number of tablespoons by 8 to determine the number of sticks.

Conversely, if a recipe calls for butter in sticks, but no such butter is available, multiply the number of sticks by 4 to determine the amount necessary in ounces, or multiply it by 8 to determine the number of tablespoons.
