    Need answer checked

    Thanks in advance.

    \frac{5x-5}{6} \cdot \frac{x}{x^2-x} = \frac{5x^2-5x}{6x^2-6x} = x^2+x

    Nope, I am sorry to say.

    factor:

    \frac{5(x-1)}{6}\cdot\frac{x}{x(x-1)}=\frac{5}{6}

    Your problem can be found here...

    \frac{5x^2-5x}{6x^2-6x} = x^2+x

    You took out the coefficients instead of the variables. The end result should be five sixths as Galactus showed you.
