    Ok so first you have to find a common denominator. what is something that both 3 and 6 go into evenly?

    Ok or even more simply your common denominator could be 6 3*2=6 6*1=6 so your common denominator will be 6

    so in order to get a common denominator you have to do the same thing to the top as you do to the bottom of your fraction. Because 5/6 already has 6 as the common denominator you can leave that fraction alone.

    Now take 2/3 3*2=6 2*2=4 your fraction should now look like this 4/6

    Your equation looks like this now: 4/6+5/6 simply add the numerators together 4+5=9/6

    YOu can simplify this by asking how many times six goes into nine and how much is left over. 6 goes into 9 once. 1 (3/6) or 1(1/2)

  23. anonymous

    so either 9/6 or 1(1/2) is your answer

    Ok so i2/3=4/6 because in order to have a comomon denominator, which is 6, I have to multiply both the bottom and the top by the same number. so to get 3 to 6 I have to multiply 3*2 You have to do the same thing to the top of the fraction 2*2=4 so now your fraction is 4/6

    right that's this step.... YOu can simplify this by asking how many times six goes into nine and how much is left over. 6 goes into 9 once and you have 3 left over. 1 (3/6) 3/6=1/2 your final answer is: 1(1/2)

    good job so what do you have to multiply 3 by to get 6 as a common denominator

    Right and whatever you do to the bottom you have to do to the top so multiply 2 by 2 as well and what does 2/3=?

    no... so you multiplied 3*2=6 for you denominator now you have to multiply the numerator by 2 as well so that your fraction is correct. 2*2=4 so 2/3=4/6

    If you multiply the bottom of a fraction you ave to multiply by the exact same number to the top of the fraction

    right then I did the 1/6 and got 2/6 then 4/6-2/6=2/6

    Ok well -1/6 already has 6 as the denominator so you actually don't have to worry about that particular fraction

    your problem should look like this now: 4/6-1/6=? simply do the subtraction across the top. your answer should be 3/6 you can simplify this because you know 3 is 1/2 of 6 so your answer is 1/2

  53. anonymous
    • 5 years ago
    Best Response

    No because the only reason we did it to the other fraction was to make it have the same denominator as -1/6 because both 3 and 6 can go into 6
