# How do you solve \frac { 1} { 5} ( x ) - \frac { 2} { 3} = \frac { 4} { 3}?

$x = 10$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{1}{5} \left(x\right) - \frac{2}{3} = \frac{4}{3}$
$\frac{x}{5} - \frac{2}{3} = \frac{4}{3}$
$\frac{x}{5} = \frac{4}{3} + \frac{2}{3}$
$\frac{x}{5} = \frac{6}{3}$
$\frac{x}{5} = 2$
$x = 10$
