1/3 of an inning = .33333333333 (or just .33)

2/3 of an inning = .66666666666 (or just .67)

Many people do. It is the ones that do not that would find the above formulae useful

But in particular I've seen people make careless errors since partial innings are often written as if they were decimals ala 8.1 innings pitched. Non-math types may just plug 8.1 into the formula, which clearly won't work.
