Firstly equate x/5 = 2/3 Cross multiply it and then solve for x.. Can you do that???
no???????????????????????
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?
Multiply both the sides, what you get???
what?
It is ok.. I will show you how to do this in a draw... |dw:1340295759878:dw| Getting or not???
not?
Where you are facing problem just tell me...
Which step you are not getting tell me??
um the whole thing im lost beneath this world and the next lol? :P
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???
idk?
What you don't know??
any of it...... im dumb
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??
yes :)
So, can you please concentrate tell me why I am first equating x/5 = 2/3?? Point it out or not??
um to get rid of those and find the answer for that particular one?
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??
yeah
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???
yes
For finding y value what will you equate???
2/3=5/y
Oh great yaar you are getting it.. Then you will find y now.. What is y?? calculate hurry up..
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???
yeah so its 4/9?
After finding y what you did next??
thats it
I think you after finding y just see the solution of RomeoRaj.. Did you??
yeah
ok
One thing You must remember, Seeing answers is not the problem, but the thing that matters is how we have come to that answer...
ok
