Homework Help: Chemistry

Show the mechanism that illustrates the following reaction.

1-methyl-1-methanol-cyclopentane + acid -> 1-methyl-cyclohexene

So, there is an elimination reaction, *AND* the carbon ring grows from a five carbon ring to a six carbon ring.

(I hope my IUPAC name for 1-methyl-1-methanol-cyclopentane is correct. One methyl group and one methanol group are attached to the same carbon on a cyclopentane structure).
