twice what number is equal to three times that number

what is the number they start out with?

Only possible if your number is zero
2x = 3x
0 = x 
I was not given any number to start with

well then this is not a proper answer if u have no ending number or any beggining number.

Use rounding to decide if the answer is reasonable. Then find the answer to see if you were right.
5739=81 
I guess it WOULD have to be 0.
