x + $$\frac36$$   =   x - $$\frac28$$

Subtract  x  from both sides of the equation.

$$\frac36$$   =   - $$\frac{2}{8}$$

A positive number can not equal a negative number.

There is no possible value for  x  that can make the equation true, so there is no solution.

Did you mean to put parenthesees somewhere in your question?
