6. 4 9/6 - 4 4/6 = _______ meters
The first ribbon is over 5 meters, while the second ribbon is almost 5 meters long.
9/6 - 4/6 = 5/6 (hint: remember to just subtract the numerators (the top portions)
ANd the 4 m - 4m = 0 so the final answer is that one is 5/6 of a meter longer then the other piece.
