Riddle Of The Day People!! Solve For Geniuses

Femi, a budding mathematician and printer, is making himself a fake ID. He needs it to say he's 21.

The problem is he's not using a computer, but rather he has some symbols he's bought from the store, and that's it.

He has one 1, one 5, one 6, one 7, and an unlimited supply of (+ – x ÷) (the operations addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).

Using each number exactly once (but you can use any number of +, any number of -, …) , how can he get 21 from 1, 5, 6, 7?

Note: you can't do things like 15+6 = 21. You have to use the four operations as 'binary' operations: ((1+5)*6)+7.

I solved it, you can too!!!
