Please help me, thank you=)This question is from textbook algebra Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2/3x=24 ------- When you don't use parentheses your problem can be interpreted two ways: -------- 1st Way: (2/3)x = 24 2x = 72 x = 36 ------------ 2nd Way: 2/(3x) = 24 1/(3x) = 12 3x = 1/12 x = 1/36 -------------- Cheers, Stan H.
