# solving proportions 4/3=8/x

Jagger13

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

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