Answer

x=1

Work Step by Step

$\frac{x}{3}$+$\frac{x}{2}$=$\frac{5}{6}$ 6($\frac{x}{3}$+$\frac{x}{2}$)=6($\frac{5}{6}$) $\frac{6x}{3}$+$\frac{6x}{2}$=5 2x+3x=5 5x=5 x=$\frac{5}{5}$ x=1 Check the answer. $\frac{1}{3}$+$\frac{1}{2}$=$\frac{5}{6}$ $\frac{1(2)}{3(2)}$+$\frac{1(3)}{2(3)}$=$\frac{5}{6}$ $\frac{2}{6}$+$\frac{3}{6}$=$\frac{5}{6}$ $\frac{5}{6}$=$\frac{5}{6}$
