    By 4 2/3, you mean 4 and 2/3 as a mixed number?

    First, add 4 2/3 to each side like this z - 4 2/3 = 2 2/3 + 4 2/3 + 4 2/3 Z = (answer here)

    Both ways you did that would be correct. Give me a second and let me work out how to do it so I can explain it better :)

    1) Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction 2*3=6+2=8 // 4*3=12+2=14 \[\frac{ 8 }{ 3 } + \frac{ 14 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 22 }{ 3 }\]

    22 ÷ 3 = 7 1/3

    Why did you subtract 4(2/3) from 7(1/3)? I'm not being harsh, just curious :)

    i thought that 7(1/3) was what Z equaled because of what you said. i must have read your answer wrong.

    Z would just be: Z = 7(1/3), no subtracting or anything. Do you understand what I did, though?

    yes. but if you look at my first question you will see that i have to subtract to check the answer.
