  3. a) 1. x/20 = 12/16 2. 12 * 20 = 240 3. 240 / 16 = 15 4. (doublecheck) 15 * 16 = 240 x = 15
    b) 1. x/20 = 6/8 2. 6 * 20 = 120 3. 120 / 8 = 15 4. (doublecheck) 15 * 8 = 120 x = 15
    c) In A and B x should equal the same number because in both you are looking for x and it cant magically change its value
