Rational equation
5/x3  3/x+3=2/x^29
how do I solve?

multiply everything by x^29, which gives you:
5(x+3)3(x3)=2
Have fun!

9(x+3)3(x+3)=2
9x+27+39=2
6x36
6x=48
x=8
Is this right?

I apologize! I misread your equation. Multiply through by x^2 gives:
9x^28x2=0. Use Quadratic Formula to get two solutions: (8+sqrt(136))/18 and (8sqrt(136))/18. I checked, and both work!
