Firstly equate x/5 = 2/3
Cross multiply it and then solve for x..
Can you do that???

Or you can instead of multiplying simply mutiply the upper equation by 5 both the sides..
This you can work out or not??

Want to learn how we solve these type of problems or you are simply interested in only the answer of the problem??

First step is to equate the first two things because they are given equal..
So, we have done :
x/5 = 2/3
This step you got or not???

See we are given :
x/5 = 2/3 = 5/y
Here we can equate any one of the three..
You can equate:
x/5 = 2/3
Or you can equate:
5/y = 2/3
Or you can also equate:
x/5 = 5/y..
This point is clear to you or not??

So, can you please concentrate tell me why I am first equating x/5 = 2/3??
Point it out or not??

Ha ha ha..
What is the question saying??
Concentrate on what we have to find..
We are to find x/y..
you will only be able to find x/y if you know the values of x and y else you can't..
So, by doing that I am finding the value of x..
Got or not??

So, tell me how you will find :
x/5 = 2/3
What will you do first??

cross multiply by taking 2*5 and 3*x

and that would be 10=3x then u divide by 3 and that would be 3.333333333333333

No no, you did right but do not take it in decimals,
You got x = 10/3
Right???

Oh great yaar you are getting it..
Then you will find y now..
What is y??

x/5=2/3
x=10/3
5/y=2/3
y/5=3/2
y=15/2
therefore, x/y=(10/3) / (15/2)
x/y=4/9

Don't look at the solution @wizmantr5
just solve it on your own..

2*y and 5*3 that would be 15=2y then u divide by 2 and that would be 7.5

Don't go in decimals,
See you got y = 15/2
Right???
