So first multiply the whole numbers.
Now multiply 6 and 7. When multiplying a fraction like this, do the numerator ONLY. So it ends up being 42/10.  That can be turned to a mixed number. To do that, find out how many times 10 can go into 42. The highest whole number is 4.
10x4=40 and there's 2 left over. So make it 2/10 which can be simplified to 1/5
Now add.
12+4=16+1/5= 16 1/5
