seventy-eleven and a half
three and five sixths
2 and 1 sixth
8 and 3/6 minus 6 and 5/6 = 5/3
2 minus five sixths is 1 1/6.
1 and 11/12
Three fourths minus three sixths equals one fourth
1 and one half
5/6 minus 3/12 is 7/12
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.
5 minus 5 sixths is 4 and one sixth.
4 over 7
You change five sixths into ten twelfths and three quarters into nine twelfths. Then you subtract the nine twelfths from the ten twelfths, which equals one twelfth.
Nine and five-ninths minus six and five-sixths = 49/18 or 213/18
Two thirds is four sixths. One sixth minus four sixths is minus three sixths, which is also minus one half.
1 minus five sixths equals one sixth
Three-sixths minus two-sixths is one-sixth.
One minus a sixth is five sixths.
four sixths or two thirds
The answer is: 3 and 5/6 minus 1 and 1/2 = 2 and 1/3
three sixths, or one half
