To simplify ( \frac{1}{2} - \frac{1}{3} ), find a common denominator for the fractions, which is 6. Then, rewrite the fractions with the common denominator:

[ \frac{1}{2} = \frac{3}{6} ] [ \frac{1}{3} = \frac{2}{6} ]

Now subtract the fractions:

[ \frac{3}{6} - \frac{2}{6} = \frac{1}{6} ]

So, ( \frac{1}{2} - \frac{1}{3} ) simplifies to ( \frac{1}{6} ).
