welcome countess.

you did come up with 1/3rd, right? or 2/6ths?

unless, of course, you were measuring half and half. then it would be .16666 of each.

Welcome Countess! Having to use math while cooking can catch you off guard at time huh?

As buckytom said, you should have come up with 1/3 or 2/6 (2/6 is 1/3, just simplify it down). If you don’t want to multiply the fractions out, a quick way in this case is to think of what you had. You had two thirds. So, that’s 1/3 + 1/3. Half of that is only one of them = 1/3.
