Start with inverse of addition, by subtracting 9 from both sides of the equation. This leaves us with -2/3(x)=5. The next step is inverse of multiplication, separating "x" from its coefficient. Divide both sides by -2/3. The solution is "x=-7 1/2". If your teacher prefers decimals, the answer is "x=-7.5".
