### What is 2 and a half minus 1 and 2 thirds?

You have to convert your fractions so that they are all the
same. In this case, we can use sixths. So two and three sixths (two
and a half), minus one and four sixths (one and two thirds), would
equal five sixths. Another way to do it is to convert the whole
numbers to sixths as well. Fifteen sixths minus ten sixths equals
five sixths.

### How many sixths equal one quarter?

One sixth and one half sixth. You can't make a quarter out of a
whole number of sixths.
x . 1/6 = 1/4
4x = 6
x = 6/4 = 3/2 = one and a half.
So one and a half sixths make one quarter.
So if you had a cake that was divided in to sixths already, and you
had to share it out evenly between four people, each would get one
and a half pieces.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What is one and two thirds add four and five sixths?

Before you can add fractions, you first need to convert the
fractions so they have common denominators. Two thirds is equal to
four sixths, so now we can add the fractions that have common
denominators. Four sixths and five sixths equals eleven sixths, or
one and five sixths left over. Now, add your whole numbers...one,
four and the one gained when we converted the fraction equals six
and five sixths.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What is four sixths rounded to the nearest half?

Four sixths, which is equal to two thirds, if rounded to the
nearest half is approximately one half. In terms of a decimal
analysis, two thirds is very close to .67, and .67 - .5 = .17, so
two thirds is just .17 more than a half, but if we compare it to
the number one, two thirds is fully a third (or .333...) less than
one. And that is more than .17 so two thirds is closer to a half
than it is to one.
