This lesson needs some real sentences to demonstrate how to use the expressions.
Example "Add a liter and a half of water" = Ajouter un LITRE et demi d’eau" but "Add a liter and a third of water" == "Ajouter un litre et UN tiers d'eau". Sentences along these lines. I apologize if there is another lesson showing this. If there is it should be linked. Note also I am confused by the inconsistency of online translators with the above examples..
Additional difficult sentences " One third of students had a passing grade" == "Un tiers des étudiants ont obtenu une note de passage" OR " Un tiers des étudiants A obtenu une note de passage"??? I have seen both.
- "real sentences to demonstrate how to use the expressions": Thank you for your suggestions! Indeed, examples in context are always better. This lesson needed a bit of TLC so thanks to you it is now done. The link to the lesson on "Demi, moitié, etc = Half" has been added to the lesson
- "Un tiers de étudiants a / ont obtenu...":
Both are acceptable. It depends on whether you want to insist of the plurality or the collective item.
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
