The sum of two numbers is


The sum of two numbers is $\frac{-4}{3}$. If one of the numbers is $-5$, find the other.


It is given that the sum of two numbers is $\frac{-4}{3}$, where one of the number $s$ is $-5$.

Let the other number be $x$.

$\therefore x+(-5)=\frac{-4}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{-4}{3}-\left(\frac{-5}{1}\right)$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{-4}{3}-\frac{-15}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{-4-(-15)}{3}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{-4+15}{3}=\frac{11}{3}$
