what is two more than a number equals three times the sum of onethird of the number plus 6 in standard or numerical form.

2x = 3(1/3x + 6)
2x = x + 18
x = 18

The question is bogus, there is no solution
Sierra read your question as "two times a number" but you said "two more than a number" , so it should be
x  2 = 3((1/3)x + 6)
x2 = x + 18
2 = 18 , makes no sense !
