    1/3x = x - 22

    This is the equation you can use to find the value of x.

    (May as well solve it.)

    Add 22 to both sides.

    1/3x + 22 = x

    Multiply both sides by 3.

    x + 22 = 3x

    Subtract x from both sides.

    22 = 2x

    Divide both sides by 2.

    x = 11 (this is your answer)
