The LCD is 24, you want to rewrite the fractions in terms of the LCD here:
\[6\frac{5}{8}=6\frac{15}{24}\]
8*3=24, 5*3=15
\[\frac{1}{6}=\frac{4}{24}\]
6*4=24
1*4=4
Now you can subtract them easily

\[6\frac{15}{24}-\frac{4}{24}=6\frac{15-4}{24}\]

If you want to convert
\[6\frac{5}{8}\] to an improper fraction, you'd multiply the denominator times the whole number and add the numerator, like this:
\[6\frac{5}{8}=\frac{8*6+5}{8}=\frac{53}{5}\]

\[\frac{53}{8}\], not 53/5**********
