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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, 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
