I'm trying to couple 3 spin 1/2 particles. So far, I have been able to find the coefficient for the other states but I can't get the results for ##j_{12} = 0## to ##j_3=1/2##.

Here is my attempt:

1) Using CG table ##<j_1;j_2;m_1;m_2|J;M><\frac{1}{2};\frac{1}{2};-\frac{1}{2};\frac{1}{2}|0;0> = 1/\sqrt2##

2) Using CG table again with ##\frac{1}{\sqrt2}<0;\frac{1}{2};0;\frac{1}{2}|\frac{1}{2};\frac{1}{2}> = 1/\sqrt2*1/\sqrt3 = 1/\sqrt6##

The correct answer is ##1/\sqrt2##.

Please help!

Thank you
