Mar 25, 2018

$3 \frac{5}{6} = 3 + \frac{5}{6} = \left(\frac{6}{6} \cdot 3\right) + \frac{5}{6} = \frac{18}{6} + \frac{5}{6} = \frac{18 + 5}{6} = \frac{23}{6}$

#### Explanation:

Another method is:

• Multiply the the integer by the denominator: $3 \cdot 6 = 18$

• Add the numerator to this result: $18 + 5 = 23$

• Put this result over the denominator: $\frac{23}{6}$
