What is one-half of two - thirds

Report as

One half of two thirds is the same as saying;
(1/2) x (2/3) = 2/6 = 1/3

One half of two thirds is one that is a whole number. To get this, you say 11/2 of 2/3 is equivalent to 3/2 of 2/3 since the mixed fraction is changed to an improper fraction. This is achieved by multiplying the denominator to the whole number then adding the numerator. In this case, 'of' represent multiplication therefore, you say 3/2*2/3 to get the final answer.

Times 2/3 by 1/2 = 2/6. Just multiply across.

The fraction 1/2 is the same as 50%
The fraction 2:3 us the same as 66.6.%

So half of 66.6 is 33.3 or 1/3!

Isn't it 1/3......? You don't even need to do any math, just use your words. If you have two thirds....and you divide them in half....you each get one third.
