Firstly equate x/5 = 2/3 Cross multiply it and then solve for x.. Can you do that???
anonymous
  • anonymous
no???????????????????????
anonymous
  • anonymous
Or you can instead of multiplying simply mutiply the upper equation by 5 both the sides.. This you can work out or not??

no????? im confused?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Multiply both the sides, what you get???
anonymous
  • anonymous
what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It is ok.. I will show you how to do this in a draw... |dw:1340295759878:dw| Getting or not???
anonymous
  • anonymous
not?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Where you are facing problem just tell me...
anonymous
  • anonymous
Which step you are not getting tell me??
anonymous
  • anonymous
um the whole thing im lost beneath this world and the next lol? :P
anonymous
  • anonymous
Want to learn how we solve these type of problems or you are simply interested in only the answer of the problem??
anonymous
  • anonymous
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???
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk?
anonymous
  • anonymous
What you don't know??
anonymous
  • anonymous
any of it...... im dumb
anonymous
  • anonymous
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??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, can you please concentrate tell me why I am first equating x/5 = 2/3?? Point it out or not??
anonymous
  • anonymous
um to get rid of those and find the answer for that particular one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, tell me how you will find : x/5 = 2/3 What will you do first??
anonymous
  • anonymous
cross multiply by taking 2*5 and 3*x
anonymous
  • anonymous
and that would be 10=3x then u divide by 3 and that would be 3.333333333333333
anonymous
  • anonymous
No no, you did right but do not take it in decimals, You got x = 10/3 Right???
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
For finding y value what will you equate???
anonymous
  • anonymous
2/3=5/y
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh great yaar you are getting it.. Then you will find y now.. What is y?? calculate hurry up..
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't look at the solution @wizmantr5 just solve it on your own..
anonymous
  • anonymous
2*y and 5*3 that would be 15=2y then u divide by 2 and that would be 7.5
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't go in decimals, See you got y = 15/2 Right???
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah so its 4/9?
anonymous
  • anonymous
After finding y what you did next??
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats it
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think you after finding y just see the solution of RomeoRaj.. Did you??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
One thing You must remember, Seeing answers is not the problem, but the thing that matters is how we have come to that answer...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
