    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??

    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

    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
