    6 x 9 = 54.  You have 5/6 more.   The answer is 9 5/6.  
    You can change 5/6 to a decimal.  The answer would be
    9.8333...  
    (1/6 = .1666...)

    Your problem 59/6 reads "fifty-nine divided by six".  You are looking for a quotient (the answer in division).  "Product" is the answer in multiplication.

    well done Bob ,you found a way through as well,

    Thanks! I think giving a little explanation helps. I should have told him 10, though, because 59 is closer to 60 (60/6). That would have been a better estimate.
