x = 50

If you mean -1 = 5+x/6 then the value of x works out as -36

3/5 x 5/12 x 4/15 = 3 x 5 x 4/5 x 12 x 15= 5 x (3 x 4)/5 x 12 x 15= 1/15

x=9

The solution to the proportion 8 over x 5 over 10 is that x is 16.

x = 50

If you mean -1 = 5+x/6 then the value of x works out as -36

if you mean (x-5)/6=1/3 then x=7 but if you mean x-(5/6)=1/3 then x=1 1/6 or 7/6

-5, 5

First you have to set up a proprtion. 45 over x equals x over 5. Then you get x squared equals 225(45*5). Finally you have to find the square root of 225 which is 15.

3/5 x 5/12 x 4/15 = 3 x 5 x 4/5 x 12 x 15= 5 x (3 x 4)/5 x 12 x 15= 1/15

x=9

5 x 5 x 7 over 5 x 7 x 7

The solution to the proportion 8 over x 5 over 10 is that x is 16.

if x over 7 = 2 over 5, you set up a proportion. x should equal 14/5 or 2.8

x/5 = 8/21 x = 8/21 * 5 x = 1.904761905

The solution to the proportion 8 over x and 5 over 10 can be solved and x = 16.
