Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so notice how all of the fractions have either 3 or 6 in the denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we can say... \[\Large 60 \frac{5}{6}+54 \frac{1}{3}+56 \frac{1}{6}+59 \frac{1}{3}\] \[\Large 60 +\frac{5}{6}+54 +\frac{1}{3}+56 +\frac{1}{6}+59 +\frac{1}{3}\] \[\Large 60 +\frac{5}{6}+54 +\frac{2}{6}+56 +\frac{1}{6}+59 +\frac{2}{6}\] do you see how to finish up?
