# How do you solve 2/3(9b - 27) = 36?

Jun 15, 2015

b=3

#### Explanation:

$\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)$ ( 9b -27) = 36

Solving using PEMDAS

$\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)$ x 9b - $\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)$ x (-27) = 36

18b /3 + 54/3 = 36

6b + 18 = 36

subtract 18 from both the sides

6b +18 -18 = 36 -18

6b = 18

b = 3
