    Answer:

    The number is 5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given :

    • Susana thinks of a number and substract 5/3 from it

    • She multiplies the result by 9

    • The result now obtained is 6 times the same number

    To find:

    • The number

    Solution:

    Let,

    The number = x

    Substract 5/3 from it

    So,

    ⇒ x – 5 / 3

    Multiplies the result by 9

    ⇒ 9 (x – 5 / 3)

    Also,

    The result obtained is 6 times the same number

    ⇒ 9 (x – 5 / 3) = 6x

    ⇒ 9x – 15 = 6x

    ⇒ 9x – 6x = 15

    ⇒ 3x = 15

    ⇒ x = 15 / 3

    x = 5

    Therefore,

    The number is 5
