This is a question that I get asked a lot, so I thought I would provide a detailed, informative, witty, very friendly, and clever explanation.

1/2 of 1 and 1/3 cup is 2/3 cup. To figure this out, we need to understand a little bit about fractions. 1/2 of 1 is 1/2, and 1/3 of 1 is 1/3. When we add these two fractions together, we get 2/6. This is because 1/2 + 1/3 = 3/6. However, we can simplify this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 2, which gives us 2/3.

So, in conclusion, 1/2 of 1 and 1/3 cup is equal to 2/3 cup. I hope this was detailed, informative, witty, very friendly, and clever enough for you. If not, feel free to ask me more questions.

What is half of 1 and 1/3 cup in cooking?

In cooking, half of 1 and 1/3 cup is 2/3 cup.

What’s half of 1 and 2/3 cup?

The answer, of course, is 3/4 cup, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

This question is a bit like asking “what’s the square root of 4 and the cube root of 8?” The answer is 2 (the square root of 4) and 2 (the cube root of 8), but we’ll get to that in a minute.

Let’s start with some basic facts. 1/2 cup is equivalent to 4 tablespoons or 120 milliliters. 2/3 cup is equivalent to 8 tablespoons or 240 milliliters.

Now, let’s think about this in terms of fractions. 1/2 is the same as 2/4, and 2/3 is the same as 4/6. If we add these two fractions, we get 6/10.

But 6/10 is the same as 3/5, which is the answer we’re looking for. So, 3/4 cup is the same as 6/10 or 4/5 cup.

What is bigger 1/2 cup or 1/3 cup?

This is a question that we get asked a lot here at the blog. And the answer, as you might expect, is that it depends. Let’s break it down:

1/2 cup is bigger than 1/3 cup by 1/6 cup. In other words, 1/2 cup is twice as big as 1/3 cup.

Now, let’s compare 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup. 1/2 cup is bigger than 1/4 cup by 1/8 cup. So, if you’re trying to figure out which is bigger without any other context, 1/2 cup is the answer.

But, of course, there’s always some context. For example, if you’re baking a cake, the recipe might call for 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/3 cup of flour. In that case, you’d use 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/3 cup of flour.

The same is true if you’re making a soup or stew. The recipe might call for 1/2 cup of chopped onions and 1/3 cup of chopped celery. Again, you would use 1/2 cup of onions and 1/3 cup of celery.

So, to sum things up, 1/2 cup is bigger than 1/3 cup, but it depends on the context.

What does 1/3 of a cup mean?

Have you ever looked at a recipe and saw 1/3 of a cup and wondered what that means? Well, 1/3 of a cup is equal to 5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon. So, if you need 1/3 of a cup of flour for your recipe, you can measure out 5 tablespoons of flour, and then add 1 teaspoon of flour to equal 1/3 of a cup.
