To find the sum of (3 \frac{1}{6}) and (-5.5), expressed as a mixed number in simplest form:

Step 1: Convert (3 \frac{1}{6}) to an improper fraction. [3 \frac{1}{6} = \frac{(3 \times 6) + 1}{6} = \frac{18 + 1}{6} = \frac{19}{6}]

Step 2: Add the fractions. [\frac{19}{6} + (-5.5)]

Step 3: Write (-5.5) as an improper fraction. [-5.5 = -\frac{11}{2}]

Step 4: Add the fractions. [\frac{19}{6} + \left(-\frac{11}{2}\right)]

Step 5: Find a common denominator, which is 6. [\frac{19}{6} - \frac{33}{6}]

Step 6: Subtract the fractions. [\frac{19 - 33}{6} = \frac{-14}{6}]

Step 7: Simplify the fraction. [\frac{-14}{6} = -\frac{7}{3}]

Therefore, the sum of (3 \frac{1}{6}) and (-5.5) expressed as a mixed number in simplest form is (-\frac{7}{3}).
