I still dont get it? Thanks

got the 5/6 to the other side and found common denominator (5/6 + 2/6) is 7/6. when and how do i solve for a?

Thanks Look at the left- and right-hand sides of the equation. What should be your first step? [hint: consider the a terms with their coefficients)

I have a series of questions like this but stuck on this one. Somebody wanna write this one out in its entirety? Eek thanks
