Work Step by Step

We first apply the distributive property. Then, we simplify the resultant expression: $\frac{1}{3}x+\frac{2}{5}x+\frac{5}{6}x$ =$x(\frac{1}{3}+\frac{2}{5}+\frac{5}{6})$ =$x(\frac{1(10)+2(6)+5(5)}{30})$ =$x(\frac{10+12+25}{30})$ =$x(\frac{10+12+25}{30})$ =$x(\frac{47}{30})$ =$\frac{47}{30}x$
