When you divide 7/10 by 1 and 1/6, you get 6/10. This is illustrated as 7/10 by 7/6 as 7/6 is obtained after having multiplied 1 and 1/6. The division sign according to the mathematical rule in fractions changes to multiplication sign as the second fraction changes its denominator to be the numerator. For example 7/10 divide by 7/6 becomes 7/10*6/7. Cancelling the common numbers like 7 out, you remain with 1/10*6/1 which is equal to 6/10 as your answer in its fraction form.

It will be much easier if you made the two fractions in same form;
1 1/6 = 7/6

7/10 divided by 7/6 is the same as saying 7/10 multiplied by 6/7
(7/10) x (6/7) = (7x6) / (10x7) = 42 / 70

I hope you understood it !? Anything Unclear !? :)
