I believe the answer to this would be 5/6. 1/6+1/6=1/3, 1/3+1/6=1/2, 1/2+1/6=2/3, 2/3+1/6=5/6 when all fractions are reduced.

If you find the lease common multiple for the four fractions you know, you get:

1st term of sequence is 1/6 = 1/6

2nd term of the sequence =1/3= 2/6

3rd term=1/2=3/6

4th term=2/3=4/6

Obviously the numerator is increasing by one. So the value of each next term increase by 1/6

The sequence  is in arithmetic progression (or AP) with common  difference of the sequence is 1/6 ,

the 5th term = 5/6

6th term = 6/6=1
