Can someone help me with this problem? I don't want the answer, I just want help. I'll post the question in the comments. It's a proportion question.

    I tried doing it myself and got 65/35. But that doesn't match one of the answer choices and it couldn't be simplified to one of those.

    Do you know how to solve it? I want to write it in my notes so I know how to do it later if a similar question comes up.

    this not too much shorter but notice if you multiply the fraction on the left hand side by 7/7 you will have the same denominator on both sides and therefore you can just set the numerators equal on both sides and solve for x: that is: 7(x-1)=4x+2

    Does the question just want 3 or is it asking to plug in? I thought it just wanted 3. I'll plug in for x and see what I get.
