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.

Five sixths... two thirds equals FOUR sixths.

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

Before you can add fractions, you first need to convert the fractions so they have common denominators. Two thirds is equal to four sixths, so now we can add the fractions that have common denominators. Four sixths and five sixths equals eleven sixths, or one and five sixths left over. Now, add your whole numbers...one, four and the one gained when we converted the fraction equals six and five sixths.
