Answer:

#8/5# or #1 3/5#

Explanation:

1.6 is 16 divided by 10 which can be written #16/10#
Divide numerator and denominator by the same thing (cancel) in this case divide by 2 to give #8/5 #
Eight fifths is 1 whole (five fifths) and 3 fifths so as a mixed number # 1 3/5#

Answer:

#8/5# ( as a fraction )

Explanation:

1.6 is the same as #1+6/10#

Multiply by 1 and you do not change the value. However, 1 comes in many forms.

#color(green)([1color(magenta)(xx1)]+6/10" "->" "[1color(magenta)(xx10/10)]+6/10#

#10/10+6/10" " =" " (10+6)/10" " =" "16/10#

To simplify the fraction divide top and bottom by 2

#16/10 -=(16-:2)/(10-:2) = 8/5#
