Debra has 2/3 of a pound of loose green tea leaves. If she wants to keep one-half of the tea at home and the other half at work, what fraction of a pound will she have at work?

1/6, 1/4, 1/3, or 1/2?

I would personally say 1/3, but, could someone explain this thoroughly?

Yes. 1/3 is correct

1/2 * 2/3 = 2/6 = 1/3
