It is five sixths.

You change five sixths into ten twelfths and three quarters into nine twelfths. Then you subtract the nine twelfths from the ten twelfths, which equals one twelfth.

fraction five thirty sixths as decimal = 0.13895/36:= 5 ÷ 36= 0.1389 in decimal

Expressed as a proper fraction in its simplest form, 9/10 - 5/6 = 1/15 or one fifteenth.
