Lets first consider the top and the bottom of the fraction independently:

Top: 4 + (2/9) = 38/9

Bottom: 1+1/6 = 7/6

Now lets divide: (38/9) : (7/6) = (38*6)/(9*7) = (38*2)/(3*7) = 76/21

Thus B is the correct answer

This one's a good candidate for estimation, which can sometimes be even quicker than doing the math outright.

If the numerator were $$4\frac{4}{6}$$ $$(4\frac{1}{2})$$ then the denominator $$1\frac{1}{6}$$ would divide evenly into the numerator 4 times.

If the numerator were $$3\frac{3}{6}$$ $$(3\frac{1}{2})$$ then the denominator $$1\frac{1}{6}$$ would divide evenly into the numerator 3 times.

Because the numerator is between $$3\frac{3}{6}$$ and $$4\frac{4}{6}$$, you're looking for an answer between 3 and 4. B is the only one that fits.
