# How do you solve -\frac { 5} { 3} = - \frac { 5} { 6} + s?

Apr 13, 2017

$- \frac{5}{6} = s$

#### Explanation:

Add $\frac{5}{6}$ to both sides,

$\frac{5}{6} - \frac{5}{3} = \frac{5}{6} - \frac{5}{6} + s$

$\frac{5}{6} - \frac{5}{3} = \cancel{\frac{5}{6}} - \cancel{\frac{5}{6}} + s$

Create a common denominator for $\frac{5}{6}$ and $\frac{5}{3}$

$\frac{5}{6} - \frac{5 \cdot 2}{3 \cdot 2} = s$

$\frac{5}{6} - \frac{10}{6} = s$

$- \frac{5}{6} = s$
