Two more than two thirds multiplied by a number is equal to two and two thirds. What is the number? (2+(2/3) x Y = (2(2/3)) Y=1 8/16/2014 | Francisco E. Comment
Call the number x, then (2/3)x + 2 = 2 2/3 = 8/3. Rewriting the equation so that x is left alone on the left side: (2/3)x = 8/3 - 2 = 2/3 Multiply both sides by 3/2: (3/2)(2/3)x = (3/2)(2/3) and x = 1. Checking: (2/3)(1) + 2 = 8/3 ♠ 8/16/2014 | John K. Comment
