Yes, two thirds is more than a half but not by a lot.

Four sixths, which is equal to two thirds, if rounded to the nearest half is approximately one half. In terms of a decimal analysis, two thirds is very close to .67, and .67 - .5 = .17, so two thirds is just .17 more than a half, but if we compare it to the number one, two thirds is fully a third (or .333...) less than one. And that is more than .17 so two thirds is closer to a half than it is to one.

2/3>1/2

Ten wholes is ten - period. Three fifths is 60% or .60. Ten divided by .60 is 16.666, or more familiarly, sixteen and two thirds.

Logically, yes, more cheese means less cheese. However, such is a contradiction and therefore impossible (unless the system is in a dynamic relationship, which in the real world is entirely possible).

Poor math. A half is two thirds of three cuarters as a half dollar is less than 75 cents. GOOD LUCK.

No, four twelfths is equal to one third, so two thirds is more.

Three and two thirds are equal precisely to three and two thirds. Nothing more, nothing less. Or if you want to make it a improper fraction it will be 11/3 or eleven thirds

It depends entirely on what is really the case!

less than

A whole is 100% Half is 50% One third is (100 ÷ 3) = 33.3 Two thirds is 33.3 x 2= 66.6 Two thirds 66.6% is greater than One half 50%

No. Think about it this way: when you split a pizza into halves, do you get more than you would if you had to share it with an extra person, therefore splitting the pizza into thirds? Yes. The more people you have to share with, the less each person gets of that pizza.

Negative two thirds is smaller than negative one sixth. To have more of a negative is to have less.
