Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Luke 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: \[\frac{ 3 }{ x1 }=\frac{ 3 }{5 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sure. 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.
