Answer:

#2 1/6 = 2 + 1/6 = (6/6 xx 2) + 1/6 = 12/6 + 1/6 = (12 + 1)/6 = 13/6#

Explanation:

Another rule is to:

  • Multiply the integer by the denominator: #2 xx 6 = 12#

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

  • Put this over the numerator: #13/6#

Or

#I n/d = ((I xx d) + n)/d#

#2 1/6 = ((2 xx 6) + 1)/6 = (12 + 1)/6 = 13/6#
