well, first you want to find out what 1/3 and 5/6 are equal to when they have denominators of 12.

so, for 1/3, you want to multiply both the bottom and top by 4/4 (because it equals one). That will equal to 4/12.

and for 5/6, you want to multiply it by 2/2, which will equal to 10/12.

now just pick any number between 4 and 10 that won't be able to simplify over the 12, like 5/12 or 7/12 (6/12=1/2, 8/12=2/3, 9/12=3/4)

Just convert: 1/3 is 4/12, and 5/6 is 10/12, so 5/12 or 7/12 would work. Although technically 7/12 is halfway between them, so maybe that's what you're looking for.
