a-2/6 -5 = a+3/3


SOLVE FOR A

    I have a feeling you meant:

    (a-2)/6 - 5 = (a+3)/3
    multiply each term by 6
    a-2 + 30 = 2a + 6
    -a = 6+2-30
    a = 22

    the way you typed it, the equation would simplify to
    a - 1/3 - 5 = a + 1
    the a's would drop out, and there would be no solution.
