## themonkey 2 years ago What's the value of x in this proportion? (x+3)/6= 5/4

1. srw1496

I'm not sure but I think you would do the inverses, like when you work out any other equation to find x.

2. srw1496

Is this what the equation looks like? $(x+3)\div6=\frac{ 5 }{ 4 }$

3. themonkey

yeah

4. srw1496

Okay then you would multiply both sides by 6, right?

5. themonkey

I guess these are the answer choices it gives me 9/2 9/8 27/4

6. srw1496

it's 9/2

7. themonkey

Okay thank you for your help
