actually it's half that. When you're doing fractions of fractions, you multiply the tops and the bottoms:

(1/4) US cup = 4 US tablespoons

so
3/4 * 1/4 cup = 3/16 = 3 tablespoons

might be easier to do it by weight... do it once and weigh how much it is, then get those little snack ziplock bags and do a weeks or month's batch at a time on your scale
