a bit surprised to see 'de' used here. I would have thought that 'da' would be more fitting when talking about amounts.

It's not an amount. You don't walk into a butcher shop and say "I'd like some 300 please"

"Right away sir - how much 300 would you like?"

"Give me a full third of it."

Fwiw, i got ' "1/3 of 300 is 100" is wrong, should be "1/3 of 300 is 100" '

Wait, is "tri ono" really wrong?

  • triono (one) third

  • tri ono three fraction

    • tri three (3)

    • ono fraction

It's a bit in the same way as
4 10 (four, ten)
and
410 (fourhundred-and-ten)
aren't the same.

As if learning a new language isn't difficult enough... I now have to do math as well????

I tried "1/3 of 300 is 100" and got "Almost correct". To be fair to Duolingo, it does cope with a lot.
