Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Want to learn how we solve these type of problems or you are simply interested in only the answer of the problem??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First 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???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See 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??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, can you please concentrate tell me why I am first equating x/5 = 2/3?? Point it out or not??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ha 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??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, tell me how you will find : x/5 = 2/3 What will you do first??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and that would be 10=3x then u divide by 3 and that would be 3.333333333333333

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No no, you did right but do not take it in decimals, You got x = 10/3 Right???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh great yaar you are getting it.. Then you will find y now.. What is y?? calculate hurry up..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x/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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't look at the solution @wizmantr5 just solve it on your own..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02*y and 5*3 that would be 15=2y then u divide by 2 and that would be 7.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't go in decimals, See you got y = 15/2 Right???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One thing You must remember, Seeing answers is not the problem, but the thing that matters is how we have come to that answer...
