1 minus five sixths equals one sixth
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.
Expressed in its simplest form, 5 3/16 - 2 3/8 = 2 13/16 or two and thirteen sixteenths.
Two thirds is four sixths. One sixth minus four sixths is minus three sixths, which is also minus one half.
8 8/16 or eight and eight sixteenths
5 minus 5 sixths is 4 and one sixth.
2 minus five sixths is 1 1/6.
Three-sixths minus two-sixths is one-sixth.
Eleven of anything minus seven of the same thing leaves four of them.
Three fourths minus three sixths equals one fourth
Oneand one sixth is six sixths (one in total) plus one sixth - or seven sixths. So seven sixths minus 5 sixths is 2 sixths which can also be expressed as one third.
2/3 minus 1/6 is 1/2
four sixths or two thirds
8 and 3/6 minus 6 and 5/6 = 5/3
5/6 minus 3/6 = 2/6 or 1/3 in its simplest form
First we convert into like terms, using thirty-sixths. That gives 32 thirty-sixths minus 9 thirty-sixths which is 23 thirty-sixths, which cannot be simplified any further.
