One sixth plus four sixths equals five sixths, or 5/6.
The first thing you need to do is make the denominators equal.
Expressed as a mixed number, 5/6 + 1 = 1 5/6 or one and five sixths.
five twelfths plus one sixths = 7/125/12 + 1/6= (5 + 2)/12= 7/12
One half plus one third equals five sixths or about .8333333.
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
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.

"What is four and a half plus three and five sixths": Eight and one third (8 1/3)
4 sixths, or two thirds.
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.
