You must find the lowest common denominator, which is 30 .
6/30 + 20/30 = 26/30 which, when reduced, equals 13/15
or you could reduce 4/6 to 2/3 before adding, so that you have 1/5 + 2/3, then the LCD would be 15.
3/15 + 10/15= 13/15
Four fifths plus one sixth I believe equals twenty-nine over 30
1/6 + 4/5 = 5/30 + 24/30 = 29/30
One sixth plus four sixths equals five sixths, or 5/6.
Answer = four thirds or one and a third.
Four sixths. ^^ You see, 6 is the common denominator, so, you work with one half. Now, you have to make 6 the denominator, right? So, you multiply 2 by 3 and 1 also by three, and then you have to add three sixths and one sixths and you get four sixths.
well three-sixth-two-sixth is one-sixth
4 sixths, or two thirds.
"What is four and a half plus three and five sixths": Eight and one third (8 1/3)
Expressed as a proper fraction in its simplest form, 4/6 + 1/6 = 5/6 or five sixths.
First convert the values into common denominated fractions, giving you four sixths and three sixths. The total is seven sixths, which is one and one sixth.
4/6ths plus 1/2 = 9/6ths or: 1 & 1/2
Four sixths is bigger than one half. Three sixths make one half.
Two thirds plus four sixths is one and one third. 2/3 + 4/6 = 1 1/3
its 3 sixths which reduces to one half
