5/6ths

(5/6) / (1/8) = (5/6) x (8/1) = (40/6) = (20/3) = 6 and 2/3

Two thirds is the same as four sixths. That's 2/3 = 4/6. So 4/6 plus 1/6 equals 5/6ths.

1 6ths of 30 is equal to 5

5/6ths

1/3 + 1/2

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.

5/6 ÷ 1/3 = 5/2 or 21/2 or 2.5

(5/6) / (1/8) = (5/6) x (8/1) = (40/6) = (20/3) = 6 and 2/3

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.

25/6 * 1/3 = 17/6 * 1/3 = 17/18
