Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:13 over 3Step-by-step explanation:Hi Jakeyriabryant! I hope you’re fine!
I hope I have understood the problem well.
If so, what the exercise raises is the following equality:
(x-1) / 5 = 2/3
From this equation you must clear the "x".First, we pass the 5 that is dividing on the side of the x, to the other side and passes multiplying
(X – 1) / 5 = 2/3 (X – 1) = (2/3)*5
X – 1 = 10/3
Then we pass the one that is subtracting from the side of the x, to the other side and passes adding
X = 10/3 + 1
Remember that to add or subtract fractions they must have the same denominator or a common denominator (in this case we can write 1 as fraction 3/3). Then,
X = 10/3 + 3/3
X = 13/3
I hope I've been helpful!
