# How do you solve 2/3x=26?

May 1, 2018

To solve for X just divide $\frac{2}{3}$ from both sides

#### Explanation:

The reason you do this is because it will isolate X. $\frac{2}{3}$ divided by $\frac{2}{3}$ is one, and 26 divided by $\frac{2}{3}$ will be 39.

$x = 39$

#### Explanation:

Solve:

$\frac{2}{3} x = 26$

Simplify $\frac{2}{3} x$ to $\frac{2 x}{3}$.

$\frac{2 x}{3} = 26$

Multiply both sides by $3$.

${\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{3}}}}^{1} \times \frac{2 x}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{3}}}} ^ 1 = 26 \times 3$

Simplify.

$2 x = 78$

Divide both sides by $2$.

$x = 39$
