Let the number be x, then: 1/6 = 1/x - 1/3x = 3/3x - 1/3x = 2/3x = 1/6 but 1/6 = 2/12 → 2/3x = 2/12 → 3x = 12 → x = 4 The number is 4.

it equals five sixth.

one third

6 The sixth number in the first 10.

do you mean to multiply a number by the sixth power? if so, an example could be 3^6 (3 to the 6th) which would be 3x3x3x3x3x3 which equals 729 or do you mean 6 squared? (6^2) 6x6 = 36
