Answer:

#c=43/30#

Explanation:

#c-3/5=5/6#

Add #3/5# to both sides:

#c=5/6+3/5#

#= (25+18)/30#

#= 43/30#

Since #43# is prime this fraction cannot be simplified.

Check:

Replace #c=43/30# in original equation #-> 43/30 - 3/5# should equal #5/6#

#43/30 -3/5 = (43-18)/30 = 25/30#

#= 5/6#

Hence our result is correct.
