I've been having problems with solving equations that involve fractions with the following problem can I get some help for solving equations that involve fractions?

x+1=2/3x

Thanks for the help.

  • MATH - ,

    I 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
