Yes 67/60 is the correct answer. Whether you write that as 67/60 or "1 and 7/60" depends upon what you want to with it, which you prefer and, perhaps most importantly, **what you teacher wants**.

But when you say "That was by adding 67 and 60 together then just putting the60 back under." I have absolutely no idea **why** you would add the numerator and denominator. There NO arithmetic operation that requires that.
