Answer:

#x=13/27#

Explanation:

To isolate the radical, we can divide both sides by #3# to get

#sqrt(3x-1)=2/3#

To get rid of the radical, we can square both sides to get

#3x-1=4/9#

Next, let's add #1# or #9/9# to both sides to get

#3x=13/9#

Next, we can multiply both sides by #1/3# to get

#x=13/27#

Hope this helps!
