Question #6560

2/3 of a number is 3 times more than 1/3 of a number.find the number?

Expert's answer

let's denote the unknown number by x. Then we can construct the following equation:

2/3*x=3*1/3*x

whence x(2/3-1)=0

2/3-1<>0 and therefore the only possible number to satisfy the equation is x=0 and it's the answer to the question.

2/3*x=3*1/3*x

whence x(2/3-1)=0

2/3-1<>0 and therefore the only possible number to satisfy the equation is x=0 and it's the answer to the question.
