    Answer:

    Given thrice the rational number -5/3

    3 * -5/3 = -5

    Let the number be x.

    -5 – x = 1/2

    -x = 1/2 +5

    x = – ( 1/2 + 5)

    x = – (1 + 10 / 2)

    x = (-11/2 )

    x = (-11/2 ) should be subtracted from thrice the rational number -5/3 to get 1/2

    Verification :-

    -5 + 11 /2

    -10 + 11 /2

    x = 1/2
