Work Step by Step

This figure consists of two shapes: One which is divided into six but shaded completely, representing 1 whole (the same as $\frac{6}{6}$) and another which has five of its six equal parts shaded, representing $\frac{5}{6}$. In total, $1\frac{5}{6}$ is shaded. To represent the mixed number $1\frac{5}{6}$ as a fraction, simply add ($\frac{6}{6}$) and ($\frac{5}{6}$) to get ($\frac{11}{6}$).
