Answer:

Combine both x values and then divide by 1 to isolate x

Explanation:

#1/6x+2/3x=1#
Change #2/3# so you can add it to #1/6# by multiplying the numerator and denominator by 2 so you'll get
#1/6x+4/6x=1#
you'll get #5/6x=1#
now you need to divide both sides by #5/6# to isolate x
So #1/(5/6)=x#
which becomes #6/5=x#
