Luke took you most of the way  you don't even really need to do anything from here  you should be able to tell by looking at it: \[\frac{ 3 }{ x1 }=\frac{ 3 }{5 }\]

You could  but if you look, you'll see both numerators are the same, so you just need to set the denominators equal to each other. (x1 = 5)

Sure. Actually, I started out suggesting you crossmultiply, but when I was making the fraction in the equation editor, I noticed that I could solve it just by looking at it instead.
