Find the difference
$\dfrac{ 5 }{ 6 } - \dfrac{ 1 }{ 3 }$
$\dfrac { 1 } { 2 }$
Find the difference
$\dfrac { 5 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 6 } } - \dfrac { 1 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } }$
 The smallest common multiple in denominator is $6$
$\dfrac { 5 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 6 } } - \dfrac { 1 } { \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } }$
$\dfrac { 5 } { 6 } - \dfrac { 1 } { 3 }$
 Multiply the denominator and the numerator so that the denominator is the smallest common multiple 
$\dfrac { 5 } { 6 } - \dfrac { 1 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 2 } } { 3 \times \color{#FF6800}{ 2 } }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 5 } { 6 } } \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 1 \times 2 } { 3 \times 2 } }$
 Organize the expression 
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 5 } { 6 } } \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 2 } { 6 } }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 5 } { 6 } } \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 2 } { 6 } }$
 Since the denominator is the same as $6$ , combine the fractions into one 
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 5 - 2 } { 6 } }$
$\dfrac { \color{#FF6800}{ 5 } \color{#FF6800}{ - } \color{#FF6800}{ 2 } } { 6 }$
 Subtract $2$ from $5$
$\dfrac { \color{#FF6800}{ 3 } } { 6 }$
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 3 } { 6 } }$
 Reduce the fraction to the lowest term 
$\color{#FF6800}{ \dfrac { 1 } { 2 } }$
