What is half of 1/2 cup in tablespoons?

Answer and Explanation:

To divide a number in **Half** means to divide it into two equal parts. To divide it into Fourths, or quarters, means to divide it into four equal parts. And we can do that by taking **half** of each **Half**. A quarter is **half of a half**.

If the whole number is odd, **divide** it in **half** and round the decimal down to the nearest whole number. Add the numerator and denominator of the **fraction** together to get the new numerator. Multiply the old denominator by 2 to get the new denominator. For example, to halve 3 1/2, **divide** 3 / 2 = 1.5 (round down to 1).

A **tablespoon** is equal to 3 teaspoons. A **half tablespoon** is, therefore, equal to **1 1**/2 teaspoons. If you've lost the teaspoon measuring spoon and only have the **half** or quarter teaspoons left, a **half tablespoon** equals three **half** teaspoons or six quarter teaspoons.

Original Amount | Half the Amount | One-Third the Amount |
---|---|---|

3/4 cup | 6 tbsp | 1/4 cup |

2/3 cup | 1/3 cup | 3 tbsp+ 1-1/2 tsp |

1/2 cup | 1/4 cup | 2 tbsp + 2 tsp |

1/3 cup | 2 tbsp + 2 tsp | 1 tbsp + 1-1/4 tsp |

One **cup** is 48 tsp. **Half of 1/3 cup** is 1/2 * 16 tsp = 8 tsp.

Reducing the Size of Recipes

When the recipe says: | Reduce to: |
---|---|

2/3 cup | 3 tablespoons + 1-1/2 teaspoons |

1/2 cup | 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons |

1/3 cup | 1 tablespoon + 2-1/3 teaspoons (or round to 1 tablespoon + 2-1/4 teaspoons) |

1/4 cup | 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon |

We can apply the law of multiplication of **fractions**.

'1/2 of **2/3** is 1/3. This is because you are supposed to multiply the **fractions** together. "Of" is a code word for multiplication.

Original Amount | Half the Amount | One-Third the Amount |
---|---|---|

3/4 cup | 6 tbsp | 1/4 cup |

2/3 cup | 1/3 cup | 3 tbsp+ 1-1/2 tsp |

1/2 cup | 1/4 cup | 2 tbsp + 2 tsp |

1/3 cup | 2 tbsp + 2 tsp | 1 tbsp + 1-1/4 tsp |
