2/3 can be converted to 4/6. So 4/6 - 1/6= 3/6 or 1/2

25/30 - 24/30 = 1/30

five and one third . Is this for homework?

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.

Five sixths... two thirds equals FOUR sixths.

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.

No. Two thirds is equivalent to four sixths (if you multiply the numerator and divisor of two thirds by 2, you get four sixths).

Yes, two thirds is equivelant to four sixths.

Before you can add fractions, you first need to convert the fractions so they have common denominators. Two thirds is equal to four sixths, so now we can add the fractions that have common denominators. Four sixths and five sixths equals eleven sixths, or one and five sixths left over. Now, add your whole numbers...one, four and the one gained when we converted the fraction equals six and five sixths.
