Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by #color(red)(3)# to solve for #x# while keeping the equation balanced:

#color(red)(3) xx x/3 = color(red)(3) xx 4/6#

#cancel(color(red)(3)) xx x/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3))) = color(red)(3) xx (2 xx 2)/(3 xx 2)#

#x = cancel(color(red)(3)) xx (color(green)(cancel(color(black)(2))) xx 2)/(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(3))) xx color(green)(cancel(color(black)(2))))#

#x = 2#
