The product of 2 numbers is `10.`

So, `xy = 10.`

If one of the numbers is `1/6` then we can let either x or y be `1/6.`

Therefore, if we let y = `1/6` and substitute into the equation xy = 10, then we have:

`1/6x = 10`

The product of 2 numbers is `10.`

So, `xy = 10.`

If one of the numbers is `1/6` then we can let either x or y be `1/6.`

Therefore, if we let y = `1/6` and substitute into the equation xy = 10, then we have:

`1/6x = 10`

In order to solve for x, multiply both sides by 6 to get:

`6* 1/6x = 10*6`

` ` `:.`** `x = 60` **

**Final Answer: x = 60**

Product of two numbers is 10. We can write this as `xcdoty=10` (`x` and `y` are those two numbers).

One of the numbers is `1/6` . Let's say that's `y` . So now we have

`1/6cdotx=10`

Now we multiply whole equation by 6.

`x=60`

**Hence the other number is 60.**
