no , two thirds is the same as four sixths

Two thirds

There are: 3/3 = 6/6 because they both are equal to one

seven sixths so 1whole and a sixth

4 sixths, or two thirds.

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.

two-sixths or one-thirds in simplest form

Two thirds is four sixths. One sixth minus four sixths is minus three sixths, which is also minus one half.

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.

Answer = four thirds or one and a third.

one

two thirds

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.

the answer is 1/9

5 sixths

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.

two sixths is not equal to 1/4, two sixths is equal to 1/3

Do the math! (One and two-thirds)

5/6

Half of one and two thirds of a cup would be five sixths of a cup.

Four sixths is bigger. Since if you simplify four sixths is equivalent to two thirds. So two thirds is bigger than two fifths, just like one half is bigger than two thirds.

We will convert this problem into twelfths. One and two thirds is equal to 20/12. Two and one quarter is equal to 27/12. If we subtract the latter from the former, we get negative 7/12.

No. If you look at the two number closely, you can see that two sixths is actually one third, which is smaller than two thirds.

When you simplify four sixths (4/6), you get two thirds (2/3), making this problem easier. Since both fractions now have the common denominators of 3, you just add the numerators together to get four thirds (4/3), or one and one third (1 1/3).
