Carolyn, if you have a calculator handy...and your computer has one in the "accessories" section of your programs on the start menu...remember that any fraction can be written as a division problem. You are dividing the top number by the bottom number.

So 1/2 is 1 divided by 2. When you have 3/8 it's 3 divided by 8. Does that help?

Hi Carolyn.

.33 is 1/3 of a cup. .66 is 2/3 of a cup. When I see a .6, I consider it to be closer to 2/3 of a cup and measure it as a slight 2/3 (not to the exact top). I handle .2 the same with the 1/4 cup measure.

I agree it would be easier if all of the measurements were the standards. When I enter in 1/8 cup as .125, it automatically comes up in the system as .13

I am getting very confused with the .5 cup instead of using 1/2 cup in measuring. The ones like .25, .5, and .75 is easy for me. Then the menu comes out with this .6, .3, .33 or .2 cups I do not know what these are. I would like to know like .6 is 6 tenths of a cup would that make it 3/4 of a cup? I do not have any thing in my kitchen that measures in tenths. I do not know if I am making more or less or the right amount for some of the measurements. Where can I find any measuring things that measure in the tenths instead of fractions? Why doesn't Spark People use regular measuring cups? I just found out that 3 oz. juice was a 1/4 cup, my measuring cup started at 4 oz.
