# Chapter 3 - Equations and Problem Solving - 3.4 - Equations Involving Parentheses and Fractional Forms - Problem Set 3.4: 53

$x=(9-7y)/3$

#### Work Step by Step

In order to solve for x, we first subtract by 7y on both sides of the equation to help get closer to getting x alone on one side of the equation. We then isolate x completely by dividing both sides by 3, obtaining that: $x=(9-7y)/3$
