seventy-eleven and a 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.
Three-sixths minus two-sixths is one-sixth.
three sixths, or one half
No. Five sixths is not between one half and three fourths.
Two thirds is four sixths. One sixth minus four sixths is minus three sixths, which is also minus one half.
Negative one half
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
yes, because three sixths is a half, cause three plus three is six, not five.
3 1/3 - 1/2 = 2 5/6 or two and five sixths.
five sixths is larger than a half.
Five sixths multiplied by two and one half is about 2.083.
Expressed in lowest terms, four and a half divided by five and three sixths = 9/11
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.
Five and three sixths. The integer part (5) does not change.
five sixths because it is more than half
No - if the fraction were to have a denominator of 6, then 3/4 would be equal to 4.5/6 or four and a half sixths.
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.
When you want to add fractions that have different denominators, you have to convert them into fractions that do have the same denominators. So for example, how much is a half plus a third? Both of these can be converted into sixths, so one half equals three sixths, and one third equals two sixths. Three sixths plus two sixths equals five sixths. That's the answer. If you have three fractions with different denominators, the procedure is the same. Convert all three into fractions with the same denominators, then add them.
