One half plus one third equals five sixths or about .8333333.
4 1 /6
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
3 and five sixths.
10/6 or 1 and 2/3
two and two sevenths plus six and five sixths is 52.
One sixth plus four sixths equals five sixths, or 5/6.
The sum of 5/6 and 1/3 = 1 1/6
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.
The sum of 5 1/3 and 5/6 is 6 1/6
"What is four and a half plus three and five sixths": Eight and one third (8 1/3)
to get this answer you need to turn them both into sixths and add them 1 thied is 2 sixths and 1 half is 3 sixths add them and you get5 sixths,which leaves 1 sixth to be the answer.The answer is 1 sixth.
When you want to add fractions that have different denominators, you have to convert them into fractions that do have the same denominators. So for example, how much is a half plus a third? Both of these can be converted into sixths, so one half equals three sixths, and one third equals two sixths. Three sixths plus two sixths equals five sixths. That's the answer. If you have three fractions with different denominators, the procedure is the same. Convert all three into fractions with the same denominators, then add them.
9/12 + 10/12 = 19/12 or 1 and 7/12
8 and 20/21
Expressed as a proper fraction in its simplest form, 1/2 + 1/3 = 5/6 or five sixths.
(1 and 1/3) + (5/6) = (4/3) + (5/6) = (8/6) + (5/6) = (13/6) = 2 and 1/6
