# What is half of 1 1/3 cups?

##### 3 Answers

Well 1 cup is 3/3.

#### Explanation:

Hence $\frac{1}{3} + \frac{3}{3} = \frac{4}{3}$ . The half of it is $\frac{1}{2} \cdot \frac{4}{3} = \frac{2}{3}$

$\frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

You can also break this down into 2 parts:

Find half of the 1 cup, then find half the $\frac{1}{3}$ cup, then add them.

$\text{half of " 1 = 1/2, " half of } \frac{1}{3} = \frac{1}{6}$

$\frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{6} = \frac{3 + 1}{6}$

$\frac{2}{3}$

Or by pure inspection using improper fractions:

$1 \frac{1}{3} = \frac{4}{3}$

$\frac{4}{3} \div \frac{2}{1} = \frac{4 \div 2}{3 \div 1} = \frac{2}{3}$

$\frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

We need to find the half of $1 \frac{1}{3}$ cups

$\rightarrow 1 \frac{1}{3} = \frac{4}{3}$

The word half suggests us to divide it into two parts which means dividing it by $2$

$\rightarrow \frac{4}{3} \div 2$

$\rightarrow \frac{4}{3} \times \frac{1}{2}$

$\rightarrow \frac{4 \times 1}{3 \times 2}$
