There are nine sixths because one whole equals six sixths and one half equals three sixths. So, six sixths plus three sixths equals nine sixths! Hope I helped!
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.
One sixth plus four sixths equals five sixths, or 5/6.
Three fourths minus three sixths equals one fourth
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
One half plus one third equals five sixths or about .8333333.
½ + ³/₆ = 1
well three-sixth-two-sixth is one-sixth
Four sixths. ^^ You see, 6 is the common denominator, so, you work with one half. Now, you have to make 6 the denominator, right? So, you multiply 2 by 3 and 1 also by three, and then you have to add three sixths and one sixths and you get four sixths.
3/6 plus 1/8 = 5/8
