= 1 + (1/6 x 10/10)

step 6 Simplify the above expression further:

= 1 + (10/6 x 1/10)

= 1 + (6 + 4/6 x 1/10)

= 1 + [(6/6 + 4/6 ) x 1/10]

= 1 + [(1 + 4/6) x 1/10]

step 7 Repeat the step 5 to find the decimal equivalent for the fraction 4/6 in the above expression:

= 1 + [(1 + 4/6) x 1/10]

= 1 + [(1 + 0.67) x 1/10]

= 1 + (1.67 x 1/10)

= 1 + 1.67/10

= 1 + 0.167

step 8 Find the sum of above expression:

= 1 + 0.167

= 1.167
