8.25

Look at the attached photo. We see that with the equation we need to get the x alone, to do this we need to get rid of 2/3. To get rid of 2/3 we multiply by the opposite of its. The opposite of 2/3 is 3/2. This cancels out the 2/3 and makes the 11 into 16.5. We then multiply 16.5 with 1/2 and get the final answer of 8.25.

Hope this helps! Please make me the brainliest, it’s not necessary but appreciated, I put a lot of effort and research into my answers. Have a good day, stay safe and stay healthy.

Answer:33/4

Step-by-step explanation:Let n = number

2/3 * n = 11

Multiply each side by 3/2

3/2 * 2/3 n = 11 * 3/2

n = 33/2

We want to find 1/2 of n

1/2 * 33/2 = 33/4
