SN1 reaction mechanism?

what is the reaction mechanism for the SN1 reaction of 3-bromo-3-methylhexane with methanol?

Answer:
CH3CH2C(CH3)BrCH2CH2CH3 ------------------------------...
[CH3CH2C(CH3)+CH2CH2CH3] ------------------------------...
CH3CH2C(CH3)OCH3CH2CH2CH3

The "+" in the second product written is the positive charge residing on the tertiary carbon indicative of an SN1 mechanism. The brackets around it indicate that it is an intermediate. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Same as every SN1 reaction.
