Answer:

#x=-1/5#

Explanation:

The common denominator is #3xx5=15#.

Multiply the terms on both sides by #15#.

#2x(15)+2/3(15)=4/5(15)#

Simplify.

#30x+30/3=60/15#

Simplify the fractions.

#30x+10=4#

Subtract #10# from both sides.

#30x=4-10#

Simplify.

#30x=-6#

Divide both sides by #30#.

#x=(-6)/30#

Simplify.

#x=-6/30#

Simplify the fraction.

#x=-1/5#
