1/6 X 60 can be done several ways.  Which way makes the most sense to you?  I think of it as "one-sixth OF sixty," which is 60 divided into 6 parts.  60/6 = 10. 

 

Alternatively, 1/6 X 60 is 1/6 X 60/1.  To multiply 2 fractions, take the top numbers times each other (1 X 60) to get the top number of your answer.  Take the bottom numbers times each other (6 X 1) to get the bottom number of your answer.  60/6 is your answer.  Reduce it to 10.
