x+1=2/3x

Thanks for the help.

**drwls**, Saturday, March 14, 2009 at 6:10amI will assume that 2/3x is (2/3)x and not 2/(3x). As you have written it, it could be either. They are NOT the same.

Subtract x from both sides of the equation. This leaves you with

-1/3 x = 1

Multiply both sides by -3 for the final answer.

x = -3
