5/6ths

12

34/6 + 15/6 = 53/6

15/4 x 2/3 = 30/12= 5/2 = 2 and 1/2

3/6 + 1/3 = 3/6 + 2/6 = 5/6 5 6ths is your answer

7 3/4ths

12 and 1 half minus 3 and 5 6ths = 8 2/3

If you convert both numbers into 6ths it is easier to work out. 1 and 1/2 is 9/6ths and 2/3rds is 4/6ths. so, 9/6ths - 4/6ths = 5/6ths.

11/12 + 3/4=11/12 + 9/12= 20/12=5/3

2/3

It is the same as: 6/8+7/8 = 13/8 or 1 and 5/8

You have to find the common denominator for the fractions, so multiply the "half" (2) by the "thirds" (3). These two numbers multiplied with give 6 as a common denominator. Then multiply the 1 by the 3, which will give 3/6ths, and the 2 by the other 2, which will give 4/6ths. Hmmm! it seems that 4/6ths is greater than 3/6ths, so you have to add a whole to the 3/6ths to make a big enough fraction to subtract. Doing that will give you 9/6ths and you can subtract the 4/6ths. So the answer would be 5/6ths. Try it.
