    or do what @AbdullahM said \[5\tfrac{1}{6}=\frac{6\times 5+1}{6}=\frac{31}{6}\]

    @satellite73 made \(\sf\Large 5\frac{1}{6}\) into an improper fraction. Can you do the same for \(\sf\Large 2\frac{2}{3}\)

    @satellite73 then why do you turn 5 1/6 into a improper fraction if its already proper?

    Because you can not add or subtract fractions when they are mixed fractions.

    and when you want to add/subtract them you need to have the same denominator for both fractions.
