We need to determine the value of x to find out what is the result of the sum x + 5.

For this reason, we'll solve the given equation.

We'll isolate the terms in x to the left side:

3x - 9x = -15

-6x = -15

We'll divide by -6 both sides:

x = -15/-6

x = 5/2

Now, we'll perform the addition:

x + 5 = 5/2 + 5

x + 5 = (5 + 2*5)/2

x + 5 = 15/2

The result of the sum x + 5 is 15/2.
