two ways: [latex] \frac{4}{3} = \frac{8}{x}[/latex]  cross multiply 4x = 3*8 4x = 24 x = 6 [latex] \frac{4}{3} * \frac{2}{} = \frac{8}{x} [/latex] [latex] \frac{4}{3} * \frac{2}{2} = \frac{8}{6} [/latex] The answer is 6

[latex] \frac{4}{3} [/latex] = [latex] \frac{8}{x} [/latex] should be x = 6. First, multiply both sides by x. Your problem should look like: [latex] \frac{4}{3} x[/latex] = 8 Second, simplify [latex] \frac{4}{3} x[/latex] to [latex] \frac{4x}{3} [/latex]. Your problem should look like: [latex] \frac{4x}{3} [/latex] = 8. Third, multiply both sides by 3. Your problem should look like: 4x = 24. Fourth, divide both sides by 4. Your problem should look like: x = [latex] \frac{24}{4} [/latex]. Fifth, simplify [latex] \frac{24}{4} [/latex] to 6. Your problem should look like: x = 6, which is your answer.
