Best Answer

1 third.

This answer is incorrect. When you use the words "divided by", that means you use the regular process of dividing by a fraction. To do this, you take the reciprocal of the fraction (1/2 here) and then multiply. The actual problem here is 2/3 TIMES 2/1. The answer is 4/3.

If you want to find half of some number, you multiply by half, not divide. The wording should be "divide into half" not "divide by half."

These two are completely different. This is a frightfully common misunderstanding and leads to great confusion.

Another example: 8 divided into half is 4

` but

8 divided by half is 16. (8 times the reciprocal of 1/2)
