if a number is subtracted from twice its reciprocal the result is 7/3. find the numbers.

help me..

let the number be x
the reciprocal of the number is 1/x
twice the reciprocal is 2/x
2/x  x = 7/3
multiply each term by 3x
6  3x^2 = 7x
3x^2 + 7x  6 = 0
(3x  2)(x + 3) 0
x = 2/3 or x = 3 
@reiny.. thanks.. :)

Thanks too...

TY

bruh
