$- 4 + 2 x$

#### Explanation:

$- 2 - \frac{2}{3} \left(3 - 3 x\right)$

Multiply $3$ and $- 3 x$ by $- \frac{2}{3}$

First comes multiplication.....

$- 2 - \frac{2}{\cancel{3}} \times \cancel{3} - \frac{2}{\cancel{3}} \times - \cancel{3} x$

Which gives

$- 2 - 2 + 2 x$

$- 4 + 2 x$

If we take $0$

$- 4 + 2 x = 0$

$2 x = 4$

$x = \frac{4}{2}$

$x = 2$
