X5/3 =1
Or
X  5 = 1
______
3
I'm trying to type and tell you it's x5 over 3 equals 1
I don't know how to do
I think I have to do reverse operation which is multiply

David Q/R,
(x5)/3 = 1, so multiply both sides of the equation by 3, and you'll get
(x5) = 3.
Now add 5 to both sides of the equation and you'll get
x = 3 + 5 = 8.
And that's your answer.

Marco,
Ok. I get it know
3/1 *x5/3. = 1*3
Leaves
X5 = 3
+5 = 3+5
X= 8
So next time I should do what I think which multiple. I just got thrown off cuz of x5
Thank you
