$\frac{2}{3}$x + 6 = x -3

Work Step by Step

The product of $\frac{2}{3}$ and a number, increased by 6, is 3 less than the number let the number be x "product of $\frac{2}{3}$ and a number" = $\frac{2}{3}$x "increased by 6" = $\frac{2}{3}$x + 6 So left side of the equation will be $\frac{2}{3}$x + 6 Right side of the equation is 3 less than the number = x -3 So final equation is $\frac{2}{3}$x + 6 = x -3
