Please remember, that since the fraction is of the whole number *dek ses*, it has to be written as one word *deksesono* (or with a dash, which is always optional). ;)

It's an important distinction with more than one fraction, since e.g. *dek sesonoj* means 10 ⋅ ¹⁄₆, while *deksesonoj* means an unspecified number of fractions ¹⁄₁₆.
