The equation `-5x - 23 = -24 2/3` has to be solved. The mixed fraction `-24 2/3 = -74/3`

=> `-5x - 23 = -74/3`

=> `-5x = 23 - 74/3`

=> `-5x = (69 - 74)/3`

=> `-5x = -5/3`

=> `x = 1/3`

**The solution of the equation is `x = 1/3` **

-5x -23=-24 2/3

3(-5x)-3(23)=-3(74/3)

-15x-69 =-74

-15x =-74+69

-15x =-5

x =-5/-15

x =1/3
