Three sixths (1/2) is larger.

4 sixths, or two thirds.

It is the latter because 4 and 3/3 = 5

0.5

Yes. If the numerators are the same, the larger the denominator the smaller the fraction is.

Six

22

no

Two thirds is four sixths. One sixth minus four sixths is minus three sixths, which is also minus one half.

Oh yes, one third is quite a bit smaller than five sixths. To compare, we can convert one third into two sixths. So five sixths is fully three sixths (equal to one half) larger than a third.

three and five sixths

Six sixths are the same as three thirds. 3/3 = 6/6 = 1/1 = 1

No,

Yes. The both equal 1.

You have to convert your fractions so that they are all the same. In this case, we can use sixths. So two and three sixths (two and a half), minus one and four sixths (one and two thirds), would equal five sixths. Another way to do it is to convert the whole numbers to sixths as well. Fifteen sixths minus ten sixths equals five sixths.

Three halves.

First convert the values into common denominated fractions, giving you four sixths and three sixths. The total is seven sixths, which is one and one sixth.

four two over six

Four sixths is bigger than one half. Three sixths make one half.

no two thirds is much smaller on a fraction table

4 and 4 sixths or 4 and 2 thirds

there are three thirds. The centre third is the slightly larger thirds and the other two are end thirds.

Each 1/3 equals 2/6, so 2/6 + 2/6 + 2/6 = 6/6, so there are 6 sixths in three one thirds.

Yes.

two thirds = 0.666 while three eighths = 0.375 therefore two thirds is larger by far
