    \[\frac{ 14 }{ 3x } + \frac{ (x+5) }{ 3x }\] this correct

    They both have a common denominator of 3x so you can just add it regularly

    \[\frac{ 14 }{ 3x } + \frac{ (x+5) }{ 3x } = \frac{ 14+(x+5) }{ 3x } = \frac{ 19+x }{ 3x }\]

    Or you can write it as \[\frac{ 19 }{ 3x }+\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }\] it's the same thing
