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.
Yes, four sixths is equal to two-thirds.
Eight twelfths, and twelfth eighteenths.
Two sixths is smaller than four sixths. Two sixths is equal to 0.3 recurring, or 0.3333.. while four sixths is equal to 0.6 recurring, or 0.6666..
Two thirds is actually equal to four sixths. You have to reduce four sixths by dividing the numerator and denominator by a common factor, which in this case is 2.
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.
two sixths is not equal to 1/4, two sixths is equal to 1/3
Two-sixths = three-ninths and four-sixths = six-ninths
