$\frac{19}{7} = 2 \frac{5}{7}$

Explanation:

$3 \left(\frac{6}{7}\right) + \left(- 1 \frac{1}{7}\right)$
$\setminus \Rightarrow$ (Mixed Number to Improper Fraction Conversion)
$\setminus \Rightarrow \frac{27}{7} + \left(- \frac{8}{7}\right) = \frac{27 + \left(- 8\right)}{7} = \frac{27 - 8}{7} = \frac{19}{7}$

If you would like it in mixed number form you can convert back. $2 \frac{5}{7}$

Alternate form just add the whole numbers and then the fractions: $\left(3 - 1\right) \left(\frac{6 - 1}{7}\right) = \left(2\right) \left(\frac{5}{7}\right) = 2 \frac{5}{7}$
