The quotient of a number and 2 is the same as the difference of the number doubled and 3 , the number is 2 .

If the number is x

x/2 = (2x - 3)

x = 4x - 6

-3x = -6

x = 2

If the number is x

x/2 = (2x - 3)

x = 4x - 6

-3x = -6

x = 2

If 9 is subtracted from two-thirds of a number, the result is 7. Find the number. The number is 24.

If the number is

2/3x - 9 = 7

2/3x = 16

x = 16*3/2

x = 24

If the number is

2/3x - 9 = 7

2/3x = 16

x = 16*3/2

x = 24
