i was looking at a recipe and it it said 0.5 cups of cocoa but i don't know what it means.
That Means Half A Cup..
Half a cup of cocoa
It's a decimal. Raised by wolves I see?
Fill it to the half-cup mark.
0.75 = 3/4
Those are the only commonly used ones. 1/3 is 0.33 repeating so it's never written that way. Same with 2/3 which is 0.66 repeating.
If you would actually like to learn decimals take a math class.
a half cup
half a cup
Thank freaking god for the internet and yahoo answers. Five years after the OP asked the question I came alone and asked the same question. For the same reason too. A recipe.
And boo to the rude condescending Anonymous Viking . Shame on you. There is a reason its called Yahoo answers. Thank god for the person who asked the question or I would not be here.
half a cup =]
