6th Grade Math: Proportions
posted by Hollywood .
14/38=X/29. I'm still confused about figuring out what x is and getting X on its own. Please Help!!!

To solve a proportion, cross multiply and solve for x.
14/38=X/29
38x = 14 * 29
38x = 406
x = 406/38
x = 10.68421 
Hi! The answer is 10.68 when you round to the nearest hundredth but I'm not sure what the exact answer is. I hope this helps.
