The quick answer to the question how many tablespoons in ⅔ cups or 2 3 cups is that ⅔ cups contains 10.67 tablespoons and this is approximately equal to 10 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons. Whether you want to measure 2 3 cups of water or 2 3 cups of sugar or 2 3 cups of some other ingredients like milk, flour etc, knowing the conversion in tablespoons helps so much in the kitchen!
As you know, 1 cup = 16 tablespoons (U.S. measuring cup)
So, ⅔ of a cup is

Now, if you want to double the 2 3 cups or add two 2 3 cups, that is the same as follows:
2 3 cups plus 2 3 cups = ⅔ cups + ⅔ cups = 4/3 cups = 1.33 cups which is equivalent to 1 ⅓ cups which is equal to 2 * 10.67 tablespoons = 21.34 tablespoons which is approximately the same as 20 tbsps and 4 teaspoons (the math is really fun and easy when you get the concept!).
