Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by 123c: on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 9:57pm.

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?
