Lets write the equation
x*1/56= 1/8
Lets do left side
1x/56=1/8
Now we see that in order to remove 56 and only be left with 1x on leftside we have to multipley by 56. If we do so on on side we have to do on the other side. So both sides multiplies by 56
1x/56*56= 1*56/8
From above you see that 1x= 7
x=7
