Ms. Sue,
What don't you understand about this problem?

Math 
tanner,
the common denominator for all of the fractions would be six.
as long as you multiply or divide the top and the bottom with the same number you do not break any math rules.
2/3=(2*2)/(3*2)=4/6
1/2=(1*3)/(2*3)=3/6
4/12=(4/2)/(12/2)=2/6
and 5/6=5/6
order the common fractions with the lowest to highest numerator.
2/6
3/6
4/6
5/6
