@ccswims Is that correct?
ccswims
  • ccswims
you cant add 1/2 and 1/3 because they have two different denominators
anonymous
  • anonymous
not if you convert them
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/2 is equal to 3/6 and 1/3 is equal to 2/6
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if you add them you can get 5/6

After I added 1/2 and 1/3 together & I got 5/6 what should I do now ?
ccswims
  • ccswims
ok, you can also do 1/2 = 0.5 and 1/3 = 0.333 0.5 - 0.333 = 0.16 0.16 = 1/6
