The difference between 2/3 of a number and 5/9 of the same number is 8. What is the number?( answer this question FIRST to be the brainliest!) About the author Mackenzie

Answer: number = 72 Step-by-step explanation: let the number be x Therefore, 2/3 of the number = 2 x/3 and 5/9 of the number = 5 x/9 So, according to the given condition, 2 x/3 – 5 x/9 = 8 Therefore, 6 x/9 – 5 x/9 = 8 ( Equalizing the denominator) 6 x – 5 x /9 = 8 6 x – 5 x = 72 x = 72 Reply

Answer:number =

72Step-by-step explanation:let the number be x

Therefore, 2/3 of the number = 2 x/3

and 5/9 of the number = 5 x/9

So, according to the given condition,

2 x/3 – 5 x/9 = 8

Therefore, 6 x/9 – 5 x/9 = 8 ( Equalizing the denominator)

6 x – 5 x /9 = 8

6 x – 5 x = 72

x = 72
