9 / 18 = 1 / 2
3 9 / 18 = 3 1 / 2
3 * 18 = 54
1 / 3 = 18 / 54
1 / 2 = 27 / 54
5 1 / 3 + (  3 9 / 18 ) =
5 1 / 3  3 9 / 18 =
5 1 / 3  3 1 / 2
5 + 18 / 54  ( 3 + 27 / 54 ) =
5  3 + 18 / 54  27 / 54 =
2  9 / 54 =
2  9 / ( 9 * 6 ) =
2  1 / 6 =
1 + 1  1 / 6 =
1 + 6 / 6  1 / 6 =
1 + 5 / 6 =
1 5 / 6

1st of all its easier if u turn the fractions to improper frac.
16/3 63/18
then, u get the least common ddenominator which is 18
then,your equation should be
96/18 63/18
then subtract since the 2nd fraction is negative.... and you get 33/18 or 1 and 5/6
hope this helped:)
