i keep getting different answers for this question. the last answer i got was 20 (which would make it not a solution) but im not sure if that is right

(3/x)1=(7/x20)
why are there brackets around the right side? Did you mean 7/(x20) ?
I can only take your question at face value the way you typed it.
Then it would be the same as
3/x  1 = 7/x  20
multiply each term by x
3  x = 7  20x
19x = 4
x = 4/19

it suppose to be (3/x)1=7/(x20)
