as I understand the question:
You would have 1/6th of the of the original (whole) bar.
you gave 1/3 to friend A. this left you with 2/3.
If you split the remaining 2 pieces in half you would have 4 pieces, then you gave 3 of the 4 pieces (3/4) to friend B this would leave you with 1/4 of 2/3 (one third went to friend A) or 1/6 of original bar.
