Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For such questions, think of a way of rearranging the problem statement so you have all the terms with variables on one side, and rest on the other side. So rearranging would give us 1/6a = 2/3 + 1/3 => 1/6a = 3/3 => 1/6a = 1 now multiply both sides of the equation with 'a' you will get a = 1/6
