# How do you solve x-2/3=7/6?

May 22, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, add $\textcolor{red}{\frac{2}{3}}$ to each side of the equation to solve for $x$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$x - \frac{2}{3} + \textcolor{red}{\frac{2}{3}} = \frac{7}{6} + \textcolor{red}{\frac{2}{3}}$

$x - 0 = \frac{7}{6} + \left(\frac{2}{2} \times \textcolor{red}{\frac{2}{3}}\right)$

$x = \frac{7}{6} + \frac{4}{6}$

$x = \frac{11}{6}$
