If this is what you meant, solve as follows.

: Let the unknown =x

`therefore 5 sqrt(x)= 6`

`therefore sqrt(x) = 6/5` (square both sides)

`x=36/25`

I think you may have meant `5/sqrt(6)` so will answer here:

rationalize the denominator to get rid of the square root

`(5/sqrt(6)) times (sqrt(6)/sqrt(6))`

= `(5sqrt(6))/ 6`
