three and five sixths
Five sixths... two thirds equals FOUR sixths.
four sixths or two thirds
No. Two thirds is equivalent to four sixths (if you multiply the numerator and divisor of two thirds by 2, you get four sixths).

5 over six times two over three 5/6 x 2/3 ----
4.25/ 4 1/4
You have to convert your fractions so that they are all the same. In this case, we can use sixths. So two and three sixths (two and a half), minus one and four sixths (one and two thirds), would equal five sixths. Another way to do it is to convert the whole numbers to sixths as well. Fifteen sixths minus ten sixths equals five sixths.
no but two thirds is more than five sixth
2/3 x 5/6 is 5/9
It is the latter because 4 and 3/3 = 5
Do the math! (One and two-thirds)
