3/17x=12

  • Math - ,

    (3/17)x=12
    x = 12/(3/17)
    x = 12 * (17/3)
    x = 204/3 = 68

  • Math - ,

    (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~ :)
