How do i find the missing number in a proportion?

24/12 = 8/x

  • Math -

    You cross multiply and solve for x.
    24x = 8 * 12
    24x = 96
    x = ??

  • Math -

    Cross multiply then divide. I figured it out. the answer would be 32

    24/12 = 8/32

  • Math -

    24x = 8 * 12
    24x = 96
    96/24=4
    So X=4

  • Math -

    No, 24*x = 8*12
    24x = 96
    x = 96/24 = 4
    Another way of looking at it is
    24/12 = 8/x
    2 = 8/x
    2x = 8
    x = 4

  • Math -

    That's what i got. I got x = 4. Why you say No?

    DrBob was responding to your answer. It is not 32.

    Go back and look at your post.
    You wrote, "Cross multiply then divide. I figured it out. the answer would be 32

    24/12 = 8/32

    So, I said No. The answer is x = 4 and not 32.
