User: 3 - 2/3x = 8

(9x - 3) + (6 - 2x) = 0

7x + 3 = 0

7x = -3

x = -3/7

Weegy: hat depends on whether you mean (2/3)x or 2/(3x). will do them both For (2/3)x = 8, x = 8•(3/2) = 4•3 = 12 If you meant 2/(3x) = 8 then cross-multiply like this: 2 .... 8 - - = - - 3x ...1 2(1) = 8(3x) 2 = 24x so x = 2/24 = 1/12

-2/3x = 8 - 3 = 5
-2x = 5(3) = 15
x = 15/-2 = -15/2
