Y=1

2+2/3n= 2 2/3

-2. = -2

2/3n = 2/3

3/2 * 2/3n = 2/3 * 3/2

n = 1

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 ♠
