Answer:3 2/3 + 2 5/6 – x = 511/3 + 17/6 – x = 5LCM of 3 & 6 = 611/3 X 2/2 = 22/6, 17/622+17/639/6 – x = 5Now we will interchange the places of x & 539/6 – 5 = x39/6 – 5/1 = xLCM of 6 & 1 = 639/6, 5/1 X 6/6 = 30/639-30/69/6 = 1 3/6If you want to further reduce it, the answer will be3/2 = 1 1/2Answer:let the number be x

(3 2/3 + 2 5/6 ) – x = 5

(11/3 + 17/6) – x = 5

(44/36 + 51/36) – x = 5

(44+ 51/36) -x = 5

95/36 – x = 5

x = 95× 5/36

x = 475/36
