Answer:

#2/3#

Explanation:

You can also break this down into 2 parts:

Find half of the 1 cup, then find half the #1/3# cup, then add them.

#"half of " 1 = 1/2, " half of " 1/3 = 1 /6#

#1/2 + 1/6 = (3+1)/6#

#2/3#

Or by pure inspection using improper fractions:

#1 1/3 = 4/3#

#4/3 div 2/1 = (4div 2)/(3div1) =2/3#
