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

  • Pre-Algebra -

    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)
    x-2 = x + 18

    -2 = 18 , makes no sense !
