    1/6 + 1 as a fraction provides the detailed information about what is 1/6 plus 1 in fraction and decimal form, and the answer with steps to understand how it is being calculated by using different methods.

    1/6+1 equals to
    1/6 + 1 = (?)
    1/6 + 1/1 = [(1 x 1) + (1 x 6)]/(6 x 1)
    = (1 + 6)/6
    = 7/6
    1/6 + 1 = 7/6
    1/6 plus 1 is equal to 7/6

    where
    1/6 is a fraction as an addend,
    1 is a fraction as an addend,
    7/6 is the sum of 1/6 and 1.

    What is 1/6 plus 1 as a fraction?

    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 1/6
    Fraction B: 1/1

    What to be found?
    1/6+1 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 1/6 and 1.


    step 2 Compare the denominators of fractions 1/6 and 1 to identify whether it is a like or unlike fraction addition. Since the denominators of given fractions 1/6 and 1 are not equal, it is said to be unlike fractions addition.

    step 3For unlike fractions addition, find the LCM (least common multiple) of both denominators of fractions 1/6 and 1:
    The LCM of 6 and 1 is 6.


    step 4 Write the fractions 1/6 and 1 in the addition expression form and multiply LCM with all the numerators and denominators of both fractions.
    =1/6+1
    =(1 x 6)/(6 x 6)+(1 x 6)/(1 x 6)


    step 5 Simplify the expression to have common denominator:
    =1/6+6/6


    step 6 Take the common values out and rewrite the above expression like the below:
    =1/6 x (1/1+6/1)
    =1/6 x (1 + 6)


    step 7Simplify the above expression further:
    =1/6 x 7
    =7/6
    1/6+1=7/6

    Hence,
    1/6 plus 1 equals to 7/6 in fraction.



    Problem and Workout - Cross Multiplication Method
    step 1 Observe the input parameters and what to be found:
    Input:
    Fraction A: 1/6
    Fraction B: 1/1

    What to be found?
    1/6+1 = ?
    Find what's the sum of 1/6 and 1.

    step 2 Find the product of numerator of Fraction A and denominator of Fraction B (1 x 1), find the product of numerator of Fraction B and denominator of Fraction A (1 x 6), and find the product of both denominators of Fraction A and Fraction B (6 x 1) and rewrite the equation as like the below:
    = (1 x 1) + (1 x 6)/(6 x 1)

    step 3 Simplify and rewrite the fraction:
    = (1 + 6)/6
    1/6+1 = 7/6
    Hence,
    1/6 plus 1 = 7/6
