do you mean the number e? or is that just an extra e?

if that's just an extra e then i believe it goes something like this.

First you set up the equation.

(2/3)the final number x, +16 is equal to 2 times the mystery number x.

so, (2/3)x +16 = 2x

first you subtract 16 from both sides, then times both sides by (2/3) reciprocal, (3/2). Then you will have x=3x-24.

subtract 3x from both sides and you will get -2x=-24. Divide by two.

The extra e is a mystery.
