how many 2/3 are in 1? This is confusing to me. Please help :)

Steve
well, there are 3 1/3's in 1, right?
So, since 2/3 is twice as big, there are half that many 2/3's, or 3/2
(3/2)(2/3) = 1 
Rose
thank you so much! I understand now! :)

Ms. Sue
1 / (2/3) = 1 * (3/2) = 3/2 = 1 1/2

Rose
Ms. Sue, so there's 1 1/2 into 1? :)

Ms. Sue
There are 1 1/2 twothirds in 1.

Rose
thank you Ms. Sue so much :)

Ms. Sue
You're welcome.
