Hello,
The word problem is... Two-thirds of a number minus one-sixth is the same as twice the number.

I wrote out the equation as 2/3X-1/6=2X

Im not sure how to work out the equation.

Thank you.

Multiply both sides of the equation by 6. That will clear the fractions.

Then, solve for x in the usual way.
