    I don't know what a TO 3/4S CUP is, but I'm assuming you mean 3/4 cup. The answer to this looks like it is a school question, but if you know the number of teaspoons in a cup, 48, and the volume of a sugar cube, 3/4ths of a teaspoon, it's trivial to figure out.
    Spoiler:
    1 sugar cube is 3/4ths of a teaspoon.
    There are 48 teaspoons in a cup
    Therefore there would be 48 sugar cubes in 3/4ths of a cup.

    I love the person who said to go get granulated sugar or scale. Do you really think that I would asking the questiion. I need to know approximate of cubes= TO 3/4S CUP.

    The question was flawed. It should either have stated "How many sugar cubes are there in a cup of sugar cubes?", or "How many sugar cubes are equivalent to a cup of normal granulated sugar?" Why not just weigh the sugar instead of obsessing over how many are in a cup or equivalent to a cup? I guess we in the UK and Europe don't bother with cups., we use scales for recipes!

    Re: sugar cubes

    You folks will have to figure out whether you are doing weight, calories or volume! My sugar cube box says they are 15 calories and my igloo-building kids said there must be bigger ones somewhere. Online 25 calories seems to be way more common so us Alaskans probably get the weirdo sizes. Delicate foreign recipes would be safer with granulated when exactness is crucial. My banana bread and scratch common cakes not made with cake flour work just fine with a cube equals a teaspoon; will have to find some bigger cubes and see what happens. My cooking interest is chemistry-oriented--I put raisins or cinnamon in the pot roast and drain pork and beans and make cold salad, etc., no foreign, delicate and particular recipes. It was interesting reading all your comments. Grace in AK

    Fill a cup with sugar cubes.
    Count them.
    Repeat this experiment five to 30 times.
    Use a histogram to find the most likely value. Wiki has rules for making histograms.

    This has been a fascinating discussion.

    Who knew sugar cubes could keep me so interested.

    Re: sugar cubes

    If a sugar cube weights very close to 5 grams, what is the volume of the cube?

    Hey! Just doing this myself today. Came up with 40 cubes to use.

    you are all wrong...

    i took a bag and smashed up sugar cubes with a meat tenderizer. then i poured repeatedly poured in my bag of sugar. it was filled up after i smashed 55 cubes. to keep up for the little holes cause by big chunks, maybe 56. so 55-56 cubes equals 1 cup of sugar.

    To use 'Material Balance' the volume and effective density are required, not just volume ( assuming 100% sugar, no filler, etc).

    If energy is the computation goal ( ie dietary Calorie = 1 Kilo-Calorie) then Sandra's approach is most interesting.
    And the density of powders is generally variable; it is increased by tapping or compacting. The act of forming a sugar cube is likely to result in a different volume than the loose sugar from which it is made.

    I think comparison has to be made by energy (as Sandra did) or mass, not volume. Per USDA database (link in our resource section), sugar is 200 g/cup, 4.2 g/tsp or 2.3 g/cube. Within rounding this is very close to 48 tsp/cup, and Domino Sugar's claim of 198 cubes (Dots) per pound.

    Thus 200 g/cup divided by 2.3 g/cube gives around 87 cubes per cup of loose sugar
