solve for variables
20/y=15/10=x/8

  • math -

    Split it into two separate equations.

    20/y=15/10

    Solve for Y by multiplying both sides by y and 10.

    200 = 15y

    Likewise, do the same for the second part.

    15/10=x/8

    Multiply both sides by 80.

    120 = 10x

    You should be able to do the rest. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
