You must have left out a fraction.  What you have given adds up to a total of 3 1/2, not 4.

2/3 + 1/3 = 1

1/6 + 5/6 = 1

1            = 1

1/2

With these fractions, it is impossible to solve the problem.

I don't think that you have explained the question well enough. Where does the triangle fit in? What do you mean by "draw the triangle with 6 circles to represent each fraction"?
