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

Work Step by Step

$\frac{5}{3}x - \frac{7}{3} = x$ Subtract x from both sides: $\frac{2}{3}x - \frac{7}{3} = 0$ Add $\frac{7}{3}$ to both sides: $\frac{2}{3}x = \frac{7}{3}$ Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the coefficient: $\frac{3}{2}(\frac{2}{3}x) = \frac{7}{3}(\frac{3}{2})$ x = $\frac{7}{2}$
