(x - 3) / 5  =   1  - x / 3          

 

To clear the fractions, multiply through by the common denominator of 3,5  =15

 

15 (x - 3) / 5  = 15  - 15x / 3

 

3(x - 3)  = 15 - 5x      simplify

 

3x - 9  = 15 - 5x       add 5x, 9 to both sides

 

8x  = 24            divide both sides by 8

 

x  = 3
