Evaluate: (6)/(3)x+4=23

Expression: $\frac{ 6 }{ 3 }x+4=23$

Cancel out the common factor $3$

$2x+4=23$

Move the constant to the right-hand side and change its sign

$2x=23-4$

Subtract the numbers

$2x=19$

Divide both sides of the equation by $2$

$\begin{align*}&x=\frac{ 19 }{ 2 } \\&\begin{array} { l }x=9 \frac{ 1 }{ 2 },& x=9.5\end{array}\end{align*}$
