I'm doing proportions, and I'm kinda confused with this one problem..
x/3=1/5.
the way I do proportions is by cross multiplying, so I get 3=5x?
I don't know what my answer would be?

Ms. Sue,
You're right.
Now divide both sides of the equation by 5.
3/5 = x
That makes sense, doesn't it? 3/5 divided by 3 = 1/5
