# Solve the following equation: (8x - 3)/3x = 2

**Solution:**

An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.

(8x - 3)/3x = 2

On multiplying both sides by 3x, we obtain

8x - 3 = 6x

⇒ 8x - 6x = 3

⇒ 2x = 3

Hence, x = 3/2
