5 and 6

#### Explanation:

I’m assuming that you mean $5 \frac{1}{3}$

$5 \frac{1}{3} = \frac{16}{3} = 5.333333 \ldots$

Whole numbers are numbers without fractions, which goes from 0 to infinity Eg. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....

We can see that 5.33333... is between the whole numbers 5 and 6.

Between $5 \mathmr{and} 6$

#### Explanation:

$5 \frac{1}{3}$ is a mixed number which means that it has a whole number part and a fraction part.

The whole number is $5$

The fact that the fraction part is a proper fraction means that the value is more than $5$, but not enough to be $6$

Therefore $5 \frac{1}{3}$ is between $5 \mathmr{and} 6$ on the number line.
