# What does 1/3 cup + 1/3 cup mean?

You get 2/3 cups by combining two 1/3 cups. 1/3 of a cup is equal to.33 cups in decimal form. 33 plus cups. 33 cups divided by 0.66 cups. The standard cup in the United States holds 8 fluid ounces. 2/3 U.S. fluid cups, or 1/3 U.S. cups + 1/3 U.S. cups, are comparable to 5.28 U.S. fluid ounces since 1/3 or.33 of 8 ounces is 2.64 ounces. 10 imperial ounces are contained in the British imperial cup. Thus, 3.3 ounces are equal to 1/3, or.33 of 10 ounces. Thus, 6.6 ounces is equal to 1/3 imperial cups plus 1/3 imperial cups.

## How Do Fractions Work?

As a portion of a whole, fractions are represented by two numbers: a numerator at the top and a denominator at the bottom. The numerator and denominator of fractions are separated by a division line known as a vinculum.

The numerator of fractions is frequently smaller than the denominator. There are, nevertheless, some fractions whose numerators exceed their denominators. “Improper fractions” are such fractions. Incorrect fractions can be changed into mixed fractions, which consist of a whole integer and a fraction, as in 1 and a half.

Fraction addition is simple. Add the numerators and keep the denominator when multiplying fractions with the same denominator, as in 1/3 + 1/3. Thus 1/3 Plus 1/3 = 2/3.

When there isn’t an identical denominator in a fraction, as there isn’t one in 1/2 + 1/3, multiply the numerators by the denominators of the other fraction, combine the results, and that number becomes the new numerator.

Since multiplication by 12 yields 2 and by 13 yields 3, adding 2 and 3 results in 5, which is your new numerator. The result will be your new denominator after multiplying the denominators of the two fractions. Therefore, 1/2 + 1/3 = 5/6.

## Fractions to Decimals Conversion

Because they express division, fractions resemble division formulas. In other words, 1/3 is equivalent to 13, which is 0.33. Therefore, 1/3 cups is equal to.33 cups and.33 cups plus. 33 cups divided by 0.66 cups.

## Cups in the British Imperial and American Customary Systems

The old English system provides the foundation for both the U.S. customary system and the British imperial system. Both the U.S. customary and imperial systems use the same units for length, weight, distance, and area, but they use different units for volume, such as fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons.

An American fluid ounce is equal to 29.573 millilitres in the metric system of volume (mL). One U.S. cup carries 236.48 mL, or 8 fluid ounces, divided by 1/3, or.33, to equal 78.04 mL. A U.S. fluid cup holds 8 fluid ounces. As a result, 156.07 is 2/3 of a cup.

28.413 ml make up an imperial fluid ounce. 10 imperial fluid ounces are contained in 1 imperial cup, making 1 imperial cup equal to 284.13 mL. By applying the same math as before, 1/3 of an imperial cup is equal to 93.76 mL, and 2/3 of an imperial cup is 187.52 mL.

## Cup for the Metric System

The cup has its own designation in the metric system, despite its infrequent use. 250 mL equals one cup in the metric system. 82.5 mL is one-third of a cup in the metric system. As a result, adding two 1/3 metric system cups results in 2/3 metric system cups, or 165 mL.
