First combine the 2 fractions on the left-hand side.

x + = -

Then subtract from both sides of the equation.

x = -1

First get common denominators for the left hand side.

x/(6x) + 6/(6x) = -5/6

(x + 6)/(6x) = -5/6

Then cross multiply.

-30x = 6x + 36
-36 = 36x
-1 = x
Thank you Mr. Hui and MAS1!
