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#

"Half of 4 thirds is 2 thirds"

Answer:

#2/3#

Explanation:

We need to find the half of #1 1/3# cups

#rarr1 1/3=4/3#

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

#rarr4/3 -:2#

#rarr4/3xx1/2#

#rarr(4xx1)/(3xx2)#

#color(green)(rArr4/6=2/3#

Hope this helps...!
