i understand the problem as 2/3 multiplied by N gives you the answer of 8 therefor 2/3 goes into 8 ____ times the ____ being what N= right?

2/3n = 8\[\frac{ 2 }{ 3n } =8\]

Is it 2/3n or (2/3)*n?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no its -8 and in ur equation it is =8

OpenStudy (anonymous):

it says solve. 2over 3n=8 n=___ so 2/3n=8 n=__

So then Smitha is right

idk.... I went to http://www.tiger-algebra.com/ and used their system and it says only one answer can be found and that is n=12. looking at how it is worked out it appears to be correct but now i am second guessing things. I only have one try with this test so I can not afford to fail it :/

If I could suggest something real quick, your equation is 2/3n = 8. If you have a calculator on you you could find that 2/3 is .6 (repeated). So .6n(repeated) = 8. Then you have to divide the .6n (repeated) by .6 to get "n" by itself. And the 8 by the .6 as well. The answer I got was 12. Sorry if this didn't help.
