Can someone help me with this problem....5x/7-6x/5=3/35

find the common denominator for the left side

You should get it to be 35

multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the number that makes each fraction have a denominaor of 35

After this

Multiply the whole equation by 35

Then you should be left with a simple equation
