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?
