# Math Help - Solving Fractional Equations

1. ## Solving Fractional Equations

$\frac{a+3}{3}+\frac{a-3}{6}=5$
is the answer to this question 9?

2. Thats what i get

$
\frac{a}{3} + 1 + \frac{a}{6} - \frac{1}{2} = 5
$

$
\frac{a}{3} + \frac{a}{6} = \frac{9}{2}
$

$
\frac{3a}{6} = \frac{9}{2}
$

$
a = 9
