To solve the equation x/2 = 20 - x/3, we can start by getting rid of the fractions. We can do this by multiplying both sides of the equation by the least common multiple (LCM) of the denominators, which in this case is 6. This gives us 6(x/2) = 6(20 - x/3). Simplifying, we have 3x = 120 - 2x.

Next, we can combine like terms by adding 2x to both sides of the equation, resulting in 3x + 2x = 120. This simplifies to 5x = 120.

To isolate x, we divide both sides of the equation by 5, giving us x = 24.

Therefore, the solution to the equation x/2 = 20 - x/3 is x = 24.
