# How 2/3 Times 2 Cups Are Equal To 1 ⅓ Cups.

You’ve probably heard of the phrase “2/3 times 2 cups equals 1 cup”.
This simple math equation has been around since the early 1900s, but did you know why it was created?

The origin of this formula dates back to the 1800s, when scientists needed to measure liquids accurately.
They realized that measuring liquid volumes using cups or spoons was inaccurate because they varied depending on the size of the container.

To solve this problem, scientists developed a mathematical equation that would allow them to calculate accurate measurements.
In other words, 2/3 times 2 cups = 1 cup

## 2/3 times 2 in cups

2/3 times 3 = 1⅔
1 cup = 8 oz = ½ pint = 16 fl oz = ¼ pint = 4 tablespoons = 2 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon = 12 drops

## 1 ⅓ cups

2/3 times 2 in= 6 in²
6 in² = 36
in³

## How 2/3 times 2 in cups are equal to 1 ⅓ cups.

1⅔ cups = 3 cups + ¼ cup
3 cups + ¼ cup = 4
cups

## Why do we use the measuring cup system?

We measure using cups because cups are used to measure liquids. Cups are divided into two parts; the top part is called the “cup” and the bottom part is called the ‘dish’. A cup is measured by filling it to the rim with liquid and leveling off the top with a flat edge. This is done by holding the cup upside down and tilting it until the liquid level reaches the rim. Then, the cup is leveled off by drawing a straight line across the top of the cup.

## How much does 2/3 cup plus 2/3 cup Equal?

1 cup = 240mls; 3 cups = 720mls; 3 x 720mls = 2160mls; 2160mls / 24 = 90.5fl oz 2.7L

## How much does 1/3 cup plus 1/3 cup Equal?

Doubling refers to doubling the quantity of ingredients used in a recipe. For instance, if you were making a cake recipe and needed two cups of flour, you would double the amount of flour called for in the recipe. This would result in four cups of flour being added to the batter.

## How many one makes a whole?

1/3 cup plus another ½ cup equals ¾ cup.

2/3 cup = 1 cup

## How much does 2/3 make 1 cup?

A 1/3 cup measure is equivalent to 2 tablespoons. So if you have 3 cups of flour, you will need 9 tablespoons.
