#### Answer

$x=\dfrac{9}{8}$

#### Work Step by Step

By combining like terms and by using the properties of equality, the solution to the given equation, $
6x+10x=18
$, is
\begin{array}{l}\require{cancel}
16x=18
\\\\
x=\dfrac{18}{16}
\\\\
x=\dfrac{\cancel{2}\cdot9}{\cancel{2}\cdot8}
\\\\
x=\dfrac{9}{8}
.\end{array}
