Write as $\left(\frac{3}{2}\right) x - 4 = 5$
$x = 6$

#### Explanation:

Add 4 to both sides $\left(\frac{3}{2}\right) x = 9$
Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of $\left(\frac{3}{2}\right)$
$\left(\frac{2}{3}\right) \left(\frac{3}{2}\right) x = \left(\frac{9}{1}\right) \left(\frac{2}{3}\right)$
Cancel the common factor of 3
$x = \left(\frac{3}{1}\right) \left(\frac{2}{1}\right) = 6$
