Three-sixths minus two-sixths is one-sixth.
One minus a sixth is five sixths.
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.
Negative one half
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.
Five and one third.
Two thirds is four sixths. One sixth minus four sixths is minus three sixths, which is also minus one half.
1 and 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.
5 minus 5 sixths is 4 and one sixth.
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
Three fourths minus three sixths equals one fourth
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.
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.
6 1/3 minus 2 5/6 = 3 1/2 or 3.5
7 1/3 minus 5 5/6 is 1 1/2
There are 8 sixths in 1 and 1/3. (One whole and 2 sixths) 1 1/3 = 4/3 4/3 = 8/6
negative one sixth (-1/6 or -0.1666666)
3 1/3 - 1/2 = 2 5/6 or two and five sixths.
