five sixths because it is more than half
(5/6) or five-sixths
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 sixths multiplied by two and one half is about 2.083.
three sixths, or one half
No. Five sixths is not between one half and three fourths.
Four sixths is bigger than one half. Three sixths make one half.
One half is three sixths and one-third is two sixths. 3+2=5
1 and one half
Negative one 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.
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.
One half plus one third equals five sixths or about .8333333.
Five and three sixths. The integer part (5) does not change.
