    1. add 3/4 to both sides of the equation. 2. divide both sides by -2/3

    (2/(3x+3)/4)=1/3 time flip (2*4)/(3x+3)=1/3 (8/(3x+3)=1/3 cross mutiplfy 3x+3=24 3x= 24-3 x = 21/3 x= 7

    If you follow order of operations, thats not the right way to solve it.

    It seems that x=5/8 is the answer because when I plug in 5/8, the answer works out. Thanks y'all. :)
