2/3x = 10;
x = 10 ÷ 2/3;
x = (10*3) ÷ 2;
x = 30 ÷ 2;
x = 15

the solution to the equation 2/3x=10 is x=1/15.
2/3x=10
2/10=3x
1/5=3x,
1/5 /3=x
1/5*1/3=x
1/15=x,
x=1/15.

For the 3th quesiton.
5/18 +(-1/6)
=5/18-1/6
=5/18-3/18
=(5-3)/18
=2/18
=1/9

Hi andrew . For the solution to the equation 2/3x=10. I think you should not give flay directly. Because it has different understanding . I don't think your answer is wrong. According to your solution the equation should be 2/3 x=10. There should have a blank space key between 3 and x. But this equation has not it .
According to my solution. The equation si 2÷3x=10 x=1/15. We should not think it it incorrect.
For these equation that others has objection , we should have diferent answer. And I also find some expert give 2 answers one time for these answer.
Andrew , I hope you can understand my meaning . This is a problem that weegy should solve.

janezeshun, the question was clear.
It is clearly 2/3x = 10, which is an equation.
For equation like this, you should divide both sides by 2/3.
You solved the equation the wrong way.

Here is the link on how to correctly solve an equation.

Or you can just simply multiply both sides by 3.
2/3x (3) = 10 * 3;
6/3x = 30;
2x = 30;
x = 30/2;
x = 15

This is how you can conclude that the solution to 2/3x = 10 is x = 15.

andrew I cann't see the link on how to correctly solve an equation. Could you please send me again ? Thanks . Is it in the rules that introduce it in detail? Thanks for your guidance.
Anyway I think 2÷3x=10 is also a common equation in our daily life or in my math class when I am at shool before.

wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2%2F3x+%3D+10&x=0&y=0

Those are the links. Just copy and paste them on the address bar.

Again, it's 2/3x = 10, where 2/3 is the coefficient, x is the variable and 10 is the constant.
When you substitute x to 15:
2/3x = 10;
2/3(15) = 10;
30/3 = 10;
10 = 10, which makes the equation 2/3x = 10 TRUE. This is how you can verify the solution to the equation.
