    \frac{19}{5}

    change the mixed numbers to improper fraction

    3 \frac{1}{6} = \frac{19}{6} and 1 \frac{1}{5} = \frac{6}{5}

    \frac{19}{6} × – \frac{6}{5} ( cancel the 6’s )

    =-  \frac{19}{5}

    Hello from MrBillDoesMath:

    Answer:   – (19/5) or  -3 4/5

    Steps:

               3 1/6  =    3 + 1/6   =   18/6 + 1/6  = 19/6

             –  1 1/5   =   – ( 1 + 1/5) = – (5/5 + 1/5 )  =  -6/5

           

              So  3 1/6 * (- 1 1/5) =  19/6 * (-6/5) = – 19/5 as the “6”‘s cancel.

           

    Regards, MrB.
