Davion is helping to paint a wall at a park near his house as part of a community service project. He had painted half of the wall yellow when the park director walked by and said,

“This wall is supposed to be painted red.”

Davion immediately started painting over the yellow portion of the wall. By the end of the day, he had repainted 5/6 of the yellow portion red.

What fraction of the entire wall is painted red at the end of the day?
