## anonymous 4 years ago Help!!!! Solve for x. x/14=4/7

1. anonymous

4*14 divided by 7 will give you x

2. anonymous

i don't get how to get x. Should i divide? multiply?

3. anonymous

oh okay. thank you!

4. anonymous

multiply both sides by 14

5. anonymous

so it would be x time 14= 4/7 times 14??

6. anonymous

no you have $\frac{x}{14}$ so $\frac{x}{14}\times 14=x$ on the left, then $\frac{4}{7}\times 14$ on the right

7. anonymous

or maybe this is easier: $\frac{x}{14}=\frac{4}{7}=\frac{8}{14}\implies x = 8$
