The answer to your question is: Yes. Someone can.
==========================================
Even though you haven't asked for the solution,
I'm here already so I might as well go through it:

-(4 and 2/3) = 2n/3 + 1/3 + n/3

Combine the 'n' terms on the right side:

-(4 and 2/3) = n + 1/3

Change (4 and 2/3) to an improper fraction:

-(14/3) = n + 1/3

Multiply each side by 3 :

-14 = 3n + 1

Subtract 1 from each side:

-15 = 3n

Divide each side by 3 :

-5 = n
