I believe it is 1/30

5 over 6 minus 2 in simplest form equals -1 1/6

5/6 minus 3/4 is 1/12

5/9 − 1/6 = 7/18

Unfortunately, 2 over 2 minus 1 equals 5 over 6 is just a wrong answer! If it is 2 over 2, minus 1, the answer is that it equals zero. If it is 2, over 2 minus 1, the answer is that it equals 2.
