    lynn is correct... Use logic.....For example use number 10 and 20..... 1/2 of 10= 5 1/2 of 20 =10.....You take 1/2 of each number but rsult is not the same

    Well technically both girls are right
    Lynn is right when it comes to portions sizes of different halves. But Tara is right when it comes to just half because a half is a half no matter what.
