# How do you solve \frac { 2} { 3} x - 6= 14?

Nov 13, 2016

The solution is $x = 30$.

#### Explanation:

Add $6$ to both sides of the equation in order to isolate the variable term, then solve for $x$.

$\frac{2}{3} x - 6 = 14$

$\frac{2}{3} x - 6 + 6 = 14 + 6$

$\frac{2}{3} x = 20$

$\left(\frac{3}{2}\right) \frac{2}{3} x = 20 \left(\frac{3}{2}\right)$

$x = 30$
