No, a third isn't half and half again, that would be a quarter. A third is to divide the object into 3 equal parts. Remember the cardinal rule of fractions, divide the number by the denominator( bottom number of the fraction UNDER the fraction line) and times by the numerator( top number of the fraction ABOVE the fraction line). For example, you need to get 2/6 of 24. Divide 24 by 6 = 4, X 2 = 8

Hope this helps!
