seventy-eleven and a half
three and five sixths
Five and one third.
Negative one half
2 and 1 sixth
Three and one third divided by five sixths = 4/1 or 4
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 and 3/6 minus 6 and 5/6 = 5/3
5/6 minus 3/6 = 2/6 or 1/3 in its simplest form
2 minus five sixths is 1 1/6.
1 and 11/12
5/6 minus 3/12 is 7/12
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
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.
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.
3 1/3 - 1/2 = 2 5/6 or two and five sixths.
5 minus 5 sixths is 4 and one sixth.
4 over 7
7 1/3 minus 5 5/6 is 1 1/2
You change five sixths into ten twelfths and three quarters into nine twelfths. Then you subtract the nine twelfths from the ten twelfths, which equals one twelfth.
