    Times of numbers

    Hello,

    If A=2, B=4, and C=6, can I say:

    B is twice/two times of A
    C is three times of A, C is two times more than A
    A is half of B
    A is one-third of C
    B is two-thirds of C?

    Thanks.

    I was about to hit "Edit Post", bhaisahab, but instead, I want to check that you really meant "C is three time A".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No, it should be "times". I'll edit it. Thanks.
