x/a=y/b solve for x
multiply both sides by \(a\)
It doesn't say what variable is what
it doesn't matter to solve for x, all you have to do is get x by itself on one side of the equals sign so if you multiply both sides by a, then on the left of the equals sign you'll have x times a/a (which equals x times 1)
