What does 1 3 Equal?

1/3 is used to represent one portion out of three. If you had a cake and divided it into three portions and ate one of those pieces you could say you ate 1/3 of the cake. You could eat 1/3 of a pizza or you could drink 1/3 of a cup of juice so it is not a measurement, it just represents a portion of a whole.
