1. We have 2 fractions with a common denominator 0f 3x.

14/(3X) + (X+5)/(3X)=(14 + (X+5)) / 3X
= (14 + X + 5) / 3X = (X+19) / 3X.

2. Set the expression equal to zero, then subtract (x+5)/(3x) from both sides:

14/(3x)=-(x+5)/(3x)

Then multiply 3x to both sides to eliminate that value completely. So you're left with:

14=(x+5)

Then just solve for x.
