    \(\large z = \frac{y}{x} \) ?? multiply both side by x and then divide both sides by z to get something that says \(x = ...\)

    If you followed those instructions, you would have isolated the x to the left-hand side of the equal sign and had a fraction consisting of y as the numerator and z the denominator. Try again.
