Answer:

#x=2/5#

Explanation:

Simplify #5/3x# to #(5x)/3#.

#3/2-(5x)/3=5/6#

Multiply both sides by #6#.

#3/2(6)-(5x)/3(6)=5#

Simplify.

#18/2-(30x)/3=5#

Simplify.

#9-10x=5#

Subtract #9# from both sides.

#-10x=5-9#

#-10x=-4#

Divide both sides by #-10#.

#x=(-4)/(-10)#

#x=4/10#

Simplify.

#x=2/5#
