    5/6x + 1/6x=-9

    1x = -9

    x = -9

    the answers can't be -1/9 in verification also LHS = RHS will be proved with -9.

    Multiply both sides of the equation by 6x.

    5 + 1 = -54x

    6 = -54x

    Divide both sides by -54.

    6/-54 = x

    -1/9 = x

    5/6x + 1/6 x= -9

    6/6 x =-9

    x = -9

    es decir 6/6 es = a 1 por lo tanto es x solamente

    You must present the question clearly :-

    (5/6) x + (1/6) x = - 9

    x = - 9

    5/6x+1/6x= -9

    find the common denominator which is 6x in this case

    (5+1)/6x= -9

    Then add the numerator

    6/6x= -9/1

    then cross multiply

    6x(-9)=6x1

    -54x/-54=6/-54

    x=-6/54

    5/6 + 1/6 is 6/6 which is ONE. 1x = -9 implies x = -9

    IF on the other hand you meant to say 5/(6x) and 1/(6x) then

    that is (6/6x) = 1/x = -9 -------------> x = -(1/9)

    5/6+ 1/6 is 6/6 or 1

    therefore,

    6/6 X= -9

    1X= -9

    X= -9

    5/6x + 1/6x=-9

    multiply both sides by 6x

    5 + 1 = -54x

    x = 6/(-54)

    x = -1/9. ................... answer

    1/6(5+1)x=-9

    x(1)=-9

    x=-9
