**Kyle**, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 10:37pmlook at 2 pounds as 6/3 pounds, (or 6 portions of 1/3 pound of beef.) Then you have an even number to compare with 6 cups. if you only need 1 cup, then you only need 1/3 pound of beef.

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 10:39pmOne way to solve this is with a proportion. Cross multiply and solve for x.

2/6 = x/1

6x = 2

x = 2/6 = 1/3 pound
