    Correct Answer
    D. 42
    Explanation

    What is 5/6 - 3/6, written in lowest terms?

    • A.

      2-Jun

      3-Jan

    • C.

      2

    • D.

      6-Feb

    Correct Answer
    B. 3-Jan
    Explanation
    The question asks for the difference between 5/6 and 3/6, written in lowest terms. To find the difference, we subtract the numerators (5-3 = 2) and keep the denominator the same (6). Therefore, the difference is 2/6. To write this in lowest terms, we divide the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 2. This simplifies the fraction to 1/3. In terms of a date, this can be written as 3-Jan.
