Answer:

Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the fraction on the left-hand side to get #x=9#

Explanation:

We will multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the fraction on the left-hand side. This will eliminate #x#'s coefficient and give us our answer:

#cancel(2/3)x cancel(color(red)(xx3/2))=6color(red)(xx3/2)#

#x=6xx3/2#

#x=6/1xx3/2#

#x=18/2#

#color(green)(x=9)#
