wouldn't that simply equal 8x? if you used the reciprocal?

4. Mrfootballman97 Group Title

Can you show me how you got that?

$\large \frac{x}{3}=\frac{8}{y}$Multiply both sides by y,$\large y\frac{x}{3}=\frac{8}{\cancel y}\cancel y$The y's on the right will cancel out, giving us,$\large \frac{xy}{3}=8$Divide both sides by x,$\large \frac{\cancel xy}{\cancel x3}=\frac{8}{x}$Leaving us with,$\large \frac{y}{3}=\frac{8}{x}$ We basically just traded places with the y and x :) Lemme know if any of that was too confusing.
