    The Question: 5x^{7/6}-5=0

    I can get to this part: x^{7/6}=11 but I don't know what to do next

    what you have is equal to ... \sqrt[6]{x^{7}} = 11

    hope that this is little easier

    If x^t = s, then  x = x^{t \cdot \frac{1}{t}} = s^{ \frac{1}{t}}

    Do you follow?

    ok you can see
    \sqrt[6]{x^{7}} = 11
    from that...
    \sqrt[6]{x^{7}}
    is greater than 0
    so

    x^{7}= 11^{6}
    or

    x = \sqrt[7]{ 11^6 }
