Convert 8/3 to a mixed fraction. 3 goes into 8 two times and then 2 is left over. 8/3 now is 2 2/3. Now to figure out how much more you need, convert 2/3 to a fraction with 6 in the denominator. multiply the bottom by two to get six, and then multiply the top by two to get four. Now 2 2/3 is 2 4/6. Now subtract the fractions. Your answer is 1/6

Find the common denominator:
2 5/6 = [(2*6)+5]/6 = 17/6
8/3 = 16/6
17/6  16/6 = 1/6
Therefore, 1/6 must be added to 8/3 to make 2 5/6.
