Answer

x = -3

Work Step by Step

$\frac{2}{3}x + \frac{4}{3} = -\frac{2}{3}$ Subtract $\frac{4}{3}$ from both sides: $\frac{2}{3}x = -\frac{2}{3} - \frac{4}{3}$ $\frac{2}{3}x = -\frac{6}{3}$ $\frac{2}{3}x = -2$ Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the coefficient, $\frac{3}{2}$: $\frac{3}{2}(\frac{2}{3}x) = -2*\frac{3}{2}$ x = -3
