**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 12:33pm(3/17)x=12

x = 12/(3/17)

x = 12 * (17/3)

x = 204/3 = 68

**Jai**, Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 12:35pm(3/17)x = 12

to get x alone, you divide both sides by the numerical coefficient (number before the variable) of x. 3/17 divided by itself is 1 and thus thus

x = 12 / (3/17)

to divide by fraction, you get the reciprocal of the divisor (that is, the 3/17) and change the division operation to multiplication:

x = 12 * 17/3

x = 68

hope this helps~ :)
