1/6 is smaller than 1/31/3 = 0.3333...1/6 = 0.1666...thus, 1/6 is smaller than 1/3.yes, one third means there are three equal parts of a number, but one sixth means that it is a whole number split into six smaller peices. think of it like a cake; the less you divide it, the more you get.

a third of one half is equal to a sixth, because ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- yes because when you turn 1/3 into 2/6 you do 2/6 - 1/6= 1/6

1/3 minus 1/6 is 1/6.

The probability is zero. No number can be less than 3 and greater than 4.

one sixth will be lesser than one fourth

One sixth is one piece of something that has been split into 6 pieces. One third is one piece of something that has been split into only 3 pieces. So each of the six pieces would be smaller than 1/3 of the original something. So one sixth (or 1/6 as a fraction) is LESS than one third and so is also less that two thirds (2/3).

One third is exactly twice as big as one sixth.

One third is greater, as it is two sixths.
