Answer

$\frac{1}{x} - \frac{2x}{7}$ = 2

Work Step by Step

"the quotient of twice a number and 7" translates to $\frac{2x}{7}$. "subtracted from the reciprocal of a number" translates to $\frac{1}{x}$ - "result" translates to = Together, the full equation is written: $\frac{1}{x} - \frac{2x}{7}$ = 2
