Derek threw the football 36 2/3 yards during Tuesday's game. The next play he threw the football 2 5/6 yards less. How far was his second pass thrown?
33?

No.
36 2/3 = 35 5/3 = 35 10/6
Subtract 2 5/6 from 35 10/6 
How do you figure out 36 2/3=35 5/3 and how does 35 5/3= 35 10/6?

I found out how 36 2/3=35 5/3 but how does it equal 35 10/6

I borrowed 3/3 from 36 to get 35.
35 5/3
We need to find a common denominator so I multiplied the numerator and denominator by 2 to get 35 10/6 
The answer is 33 5/6?

Right. :)
