What is unknown?

Value of the variable

Reasoning:

In an equation values of left-hand side (LHS) and right-hand side (RHS) are equal. The two sides of the equation are balanced. We perform mathematical operations so that the balance is not disturbed.

Steps:

By multiplying with \begin{align}\frac{3}{2}\end{align} in both sides,

$\frac{3}{2} \times \frac{{2x}}{3}\,\, = \,\,18 \times \frac{3}{2}$

We get  $$x = 27$$
