>> A third, like any other unit of measurement, is dependent on the number of units described. For example, we describe ‘one apple’ and ‘two apples’. The same goes for fractional units. ‘one third’ is simply a single unit of ‘third’. Two or more and we use ‘thirds’; hence, ‘two-thirds’ is the correct usage.

– one dozen is 12 one third of 12 is 12 divided by 3. That = 4. So 2 thirds is 4 multiplied by 2 = 8. two thirds of one dozen is 8
