Answer:

#x=27#

Explanation:

Given: #5/3x-4/3x-1=8#

Combine like-terms.

#=>1/3x-1=8#

Add #1# to both sides.

#=>1/3x-color(red)cancelcolor(black)1+color(red)cancelcolor(black)1=8+1#

#=>1/3x=9#

Multiply by #3# on both sides to find #x#.

#=>1/(color(red)cancelcolor(black)3)x*color(red)cancelcolor(black)3=9*3#

#=>x=27#
