Brian put some money in his pocket and went to the store. After paying $8 for a book, he had 2/3 of his money left. How much money did Brian have left?

Let Brian's initial amount be x

x - 8 = 2/3x

3 (x - 8) = 2x 

3x - 24 = 2x

3x - 2x = 24

x = 24

Amount left = 2/3x = 2/3 * 24

                   = 16

Brian has $16
