$2 \frac{1}{6} = 2 + \frac{1}{6} = \left(\frac{6}{6} \times 2\right) + \frac{1}{6} = \frac{12}{6} + \frac{1}{6} = \frac{12 + 1}{6} = \frac{13}{6}$

#### Explanation:

Another rule is to:

• Multiply the integer by the denominator: $2 \times 6 = 12$

• Add this to the numerator: $12 + 1 = 13$

• Put this over the numerator: $\frac{13}{6}$

Or

$I \frac{n}{d} = \frac{\left(I \times d\right) + n}{d}$

$2 \frac{1}{6} = \frac{\left(2 \times 6\right) + 1}{6} = \frac{12 + 1}{6} = \frac{13}{6}$
