3-60.

Solve each equation below for x. Then check your solutions. Homework Help ✎

1. $\frac{x}{8\ }=\frac{3}{4}$

• Multiply both sides by 8.

• $8\cdot\frac{\textit{x}}{8}=\frac{3}{4}\cdot8$

• $x=\frac{24}{4}$

• x = 6

1. $\frac{2}{5}=\frac{x}{40}$

• What can you multiply both sides of the equation by to eliminate the denominators?

1. $\frac{1}{8}=\ \frac{x}{12}$

• x = 1.5

1. $\frac{x}{10}=\frac{12}{15}$

• Use the method from part (a)
