its 3 sixths or 1 half

There are 24 halves in 12, so there must be 1/24 twelves in 1/21/24 = 0.04166Another Take:I may be misunderstanding the question. The above doesn't seem to work too well either. The question originally read: How many twelves are in one half? This did not seem to me to make sense so I changed it to: How many twelfths are in one half? I have noticed that students sometimes will not make a distinction between twelves and twelfths, five and fifths and so forth.The question is How many twelfths (or twelves) are in one half, and not how many halves are in 12. So I conclude that the questioner wants to know that 6 twelfths is equal to half.
