If her mother cut 1/6 of a meter off, that means she left 5/6 of a meter alone (1/6 +5/6 = 6/6 or 1 meter). calculate 5/6 OF 2/3 to determine how long her hair is now. The key word OF tells you to multiply.
(5/6)(2/3) = 10/18. Reduce. Both 10 and 18 have a common factor of 2, so divide 2 into 10 and 2 into 18. The simplified fraction is 5/9. Bella's hair is now 5/9 of a meter long.
