seven sixths so 1whole and a sixth

Yes. One sixth is one half of one third to be exact. Two-sixths are equal to one-third, three-sixths is a half, four-sixths is two-thirds, five-sixths is exactly what it is, and six-sixths is a whole.

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.

4 sixths, or two thirds.

two-sixths or one-thirds in simplest form

Answer = four thirds or one and a third.

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.

One ton (short ton) is equal to 2000 lbs. Therefore, five sixths of a ton is equal to 5/6 x 2000 = 1666.6 recurring (that is, 1666 and two thirds) pounds.
