Two quarters minus two thirds is negative one sixth. Two quarters is six twelfths, and two thirds is eight twelfths. Six twelfths minus eight twelfths is minus two twelfths or minus one sixth.

5 and four-thirds, ie six and one-third.

six and two thirds = 6.66, so 6.66 divided by 5 = 1.33 (or one and 1 third)

"One third more", means we need to take a whole, divide it into thirds, and then add another third on top. We will end up with four thirds in total. To find four thirds of six, multiply the fractions together: 6 over 1 times 4 over 3 = 24 over 3. And then simplify twenty-four thirds to 8.

7 and one third minus 3 and 9 tenths is six and 13 over 30 3 and 13/30
