$x=\pm\dfrac{\sqrt{6}}{3}$
Using the properties of equality, the given equation, $3x^2-2=0 ,$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} 3x^2=2 \\\\ x^2=\dfrac{2}{3} .\end{array} Taking the square root of both sides, then the solutions of the given equation are \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} x=\pm\sqrt{\dfrac{2}{3}} \\\\ x=\pm\sqrt{\dfrac{2}{3}\cdot\dfrac{3}{3}} \\\\ x=\pm\sqrt{\dfrac{6}{(3)^2}} \\\\ x=\pm\dfrac{\sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{(3)^2}} \\\\ x=\pm\dfrac{\sqrt{6}}{3} .\end{array}
