If x is 10, is 2/x in proportion to x/50? Why

I am not understanding the question very well. Algebra is not easy for me.

2/10 = 10/50

Yes. They are equal.

If you multiply the numerator and denominator in the first fraction by 5, you get 10/50

You could also simplify both fractions. They both equal 1/5
