I think we have

 

18 / (x^2-3x) -  6/(x-3) = 5/x    

 

18 / [ x (x - 3) ]  -  6 / (x - 3)   =  5/ x           the LCD  is  x(x-3)

 

Multiplying through by the LCD produces

 

18  - 6x  = 5 (  x - 3)

 

18 - 6x  = 5x - 15      add 6x, 15 to both sides

 

33 =  11x          divide both sides by 11

 

3 = x        thus.......there is no solution since this value for x makes an original denominator  = 0

 

 

cool cool cool
