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.
Half of one and two thirds of a cup would be five sixths of a cup.
five sixths is larger than a half.
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.
three sixths, or one half
No. Two thirds is the same as 4 sixths. 3 sixths is the same as 1 half. 2 thirds is 331/3% more than 3 sixths.
Two thirds is four sixths. One sixth minus four sixths is minus three sixths, which is also minus one half.
Five sixths multiplied by two and one half is about 2.083.
2/3 + 5/6 + 1/2 = 2
No. Five sixths is not between one half and three fourths.
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!
five sixths because it is more than half
One half multiplied by two-thirds is two-sixths and if you reduce it would be one-third.
One half plus one third equals five sixths or about .8333333.
Four sixths is bigger. Since if you simplify four sixths is equivalent to two thirds. So two thirds is bigger than two fifths, just like one half is bigger than two thirds.
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.
seventy-eleven and a half
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
Four sixths, which is equal to two thirds, if rounded to the nearest half is approximately one half. In terms of a decimal analysis, two thirds is very close to .67, and .67 - .5 = .17, so two thirds is just .17 more than a half, but if we compare it to the number one, two thirds is fully a third (or .333...) less than one. And that is more than .17 so two thirds is closer to a half than it is to one.
seven sixths so 1whole and a sixth
First convert the values into common denominated fractions, giving you four sixths and three sixths. The total is seven sixths, which is one and one sixth.
