Answer

x = 6

Work Step by Step

$\frac{2}{9}x - \frac{1}{3} = 1$ Add $\frac{1}{3}$ to both sides: $\frac{2}{9}x = 1 \frac{1}{3}$ Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the coefficient, $\frac{9}{2}$: $\frac{9}{2}(\frac{2}{9}x) = (1 \frac{1}{3})\frac{9}{2}$ Simplify: x = $(\frac{4}{3})\frac{9}{2}$ x = 6
