Write a word problem and find the solution to the equation. 1/2-2/3

THe answer is -1/6 and the word problem I created is:

Janet put 6 suckers on a table. 3 suckers were watermelon and 3 were grape. 1 student took a grape sucker. Of the total suckers, how many were taken?

Ms. Sue would this come out to being -1/6?

- math-ms sue please -
**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 4:24pmI think 1/6 was taken.

How about this one?

Katy and Alicia are working on sewing projects. Katy has 1/2 yard, but she needs 2/3 of a yard. So Alicia loans Katy the 2/3 yard, and Katy gives her the 1/2 yard. Katy now owes Alicia 1/6 yard; thus it's -1/6.
