Hello again, everyone. I am following a recipe, but it yields too much, so I want to just use half of the measurements. For this, I would appreciate it if you could teach me what the half of 1 ½ is. Thank you!

The half of 1 1/2 is 3/4.

And, here’s how to compute it:

To explain further, the half of 1 1/2 cups can be thought of as half of one cup and half of half a cup

Half of 1 is 1/2, while the half of 1/2 is 1/4

Now, we have 1/2+1/4=2/4+1/4=3/4

Therefore, half of 1 1/2 cups is 3/4 cups.
