Think of it like this, there are 2 cookies left for you and your friend. You want half of what is there. Half of 2 is 1, right? Half of 2 is not 1/2 because that would be half of 1. Two halves make one whole

What note is a down whole step from c?

B flat. I picture it on the piano, one key is one semi-tone or half a tone. Two of these makes one whole tone, or one whole step. One half step down from C would be the note B, another half step would then go to B flat. That is one whole step.
