You have to find the common denominator for the fractions, so multiply the "half" (2) by the "thirds" (3). These two numbers multiplied with give 6 as a common denominator. Then multiply the 1 by the 3, which will give 3/6ths, and the 2 by the other 2, which will give 4/6ths. Hmmm! it seems that 4/6ths is greater than 3/6ths, so you have to add a whole to the 3/6ths to make a big enough fraction to subtract. Doing that will give you 9/6ths and you can subtract the 4/6ths. So the answer would be 5/6ths. Try it.
I am assuming you mean 8/9ths 4/6ths or 1/3rd if that is the case, 1/3rd is the smallest, followed by 4/6ths and then 8/9ths. First convert to common denominator, which is 9. 8/9 = 8/9 4/6 = 6/9 1/3 = 3/9 Now compare the numerators in the common denominator fractions. The common denominator fraction with the smallest numerator is the smallest. The smallest is 3/9; so 1/3 is the smallest fraction.
9/10 because there are more squares to fill. so smaller space means more... it's hard for me to explain..
If you convert both numbers into 6ths it is easier to work out. 1 and 1/2 is 9/6ths and 2/3rds is 4/6ths. so, 9/6ths - 4/6ths = 5/6ths.
1 6ths of 30 is equal to 5
7/8, 5/6, 2/3
34/6 + 15/6 = 53/6
