last season a little league baseball team traveled a total of 133 miles. For their first game they traveled 16 2/3 miles; second game 2 1/6; third game 25 4/9; and their fourth game 32 1/3. How many miles did they travel for their final fifth away game?

The common denominator is 18

16 2/3 = 16 12/18
2 1/6 = 2 3/18
25 4/9 = 25 8/18
32 1/3 = 32 6/18

Added together they equal 75 29/18 = 76 11/18

133 = 132 18/18

Now subtract.

132 18/18 - 76 11/18 = 56 7/18 miles
