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.
