Q: What is larger five sixths or one whole?

Write your answer...

five sixths is larger than a half.

five sixths because it is more than half

Oh yes, one third is quite a bit smaller than five sixths. To compare, we can convert one third into two sixths. So five sixths is fully three sixths (equal to one half) larger than a third.

(5/6) or five-sixths

One minus a sixth is five sixths.

five sixths

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. 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.

three sixths, or one half

Five sixths multiplied by two and one half is about 2.083.

Well, if you have one whole and split it into six parts you get sixths. And if you put all sixths together you have what you started with, one whole.

1 minus five sixths equals one sixth

One sixth

The least common denominator of five sixths and one fourth is: 12.

Three and one third divided by five sixths = 4/1 or 4

8 1/6 = 49 sixths. 49 - 5 (sixths) = 44(sixths). Change the sixths back to whole numbers, divide by 6 = 7 2/6 = 7 1/3.

4/6 Four sixths

Four sixths is bigger than one half. Three sixths make one half.

One sixth plus four sixths equals five sixths, or 5/6.

There are nine sixths because one whole equals six sixths and one half equals three sixths. So, six sixths plus three sixths equals nine sixths! Hope I helped!

it equals five over one

No. Five sixths is not between one half and three fourths.
