Multiply $10$ and $6$ to get $60$ .
\frac{60+5}{6}+\frac{7\times 8+3}{8}

Add $60$ and $5$ to get $65$ .
\frac{65}{6}+\frac{7\times 8+3}{8}

Multiply $7$ and $8$ to get $56$ .
\frac{65}{6}+\frac{56+3}{8}

Add $56$ and $3$ to get $59$ .
\frac{65}{6}+\frac{59}{8}

Least common multiple of $6$ and $8$ is $24$ . Convert $\frac{65}{6}$ and $\frac{59}{8}$ to fractions with denominator $24$ .
\frac{260}{24}+\frac{177}{24}
