How does 1 1/3 = 1 2/6? I'm starting to learn about fractions more because it's something I missed a lot of in grad school and now I'm trying to catch up. I learned that the dominator is 6 since it's decided up into 6 equal parts but how can 1 1/3 come out of that?

Because when you simplify you are able to divide 2 into both the denominator and the numerator.

if you have 2 pies; and cut one into 3 equal pieces and the other into 6 equal pieces; when you compare the 2 pies you see that: 2 pieces out of the 6 slices equals the same amount as the 1 slice out of the 3 pieces...

we can simplify this by simply saying that: 1/3 of a pis is 1/3 of a pis no matter how many pieces the pie is cut into

4 pieces out of 12 slices is still 1/3 of the pie 4/12 = 1/3

lol, that's okay, it's just a bit hard to grasp for me, I don't know why that is exactly but I'm thinking over what you're saying, I get a lot of it but somehow I still have a hard time understanding it

we can try it with money :) one quarter = 1 fourth of a dollar 1/4 = 1/4 25 pennies = 1/4 of a dollar 25/100 = 1/4
