Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If this is a proportion, then first cross multiply and then solve for x.\[\frac{ x }{ 2}=\frac{ x4 }{ 3 }\]\[3x=2(x4)\]\[3x=2x8\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did the 2x go? what did you do to get rid of the 2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I subtracted it from both sides. I'm trying to get to equal to something and that wont happen if the x's are on different sides of the equation. Since 2x was positive, I perform the opposite of it (subtraction) to both sides, thus cancelling it on the right and subtracting it from 3x on the left.
