Answer:

#5/6# or 5/6

Explanation:

you can rewrite 2/3 plus 1/6 as:

#2/3 + 1/6#

To add fractions you need to have a common denominator (the bottom half of the fraction). In this case #6# is a common denominator. To convert 2/3 we need to multiply it by the appropriate form of 1. We can multiply by 1 because 1 times anything does not change the value:

#(2/2 * 2/3) + 1/6 => (2 * 2)/(2 * 3) + 1/6 => 4/6 + 1/6 => 5/6#
