Three Teeth

Kids just say the darnedest things!
While playing shop, Khiyali wanted to take a 50% profit margin on her goods.  To get this, she said, “you need to take 3/2 of the initial cost”  She said 3/2 as “three two ths”
I said “yes,” and then asked, “can I write this down?”
“Yes,” she said, “but make sure you use correct grammar.”
“Yes,” and started to say, “three halves.”  But before I could complete, she continued, “three teeth!”
