2/3 over 10 equals 1.8/r solve for r.

(2/3)/10 = 1.8r.
First, invert and multiply the denominator; i.e.,10.
(2/3)*(1/10) = 1.8/r
2/30 = 1.8/r
Now cross multiply.
2r = 30*1.8
2r = 54
Now divide both sides by 2
2r/2 = 54/2
r = 27
check my thinking. check my work.

Can you please help explain how to get the answer to 3/x = 2/5 thanks a heap 3/x = 2/5 Multiply both sides by x (to get rid of the x in the denominator) x*(3/x) = x*(2/5) 3 = 2x/5 Now multiply both sides by 5 (to get rid of the 5

Solve S=a/(1-r) for r S = a/(1-r) Multiply both sides by 1-r S*(1-r) = [(1-r)*a]/(1-r) Simplify S*(1-r) = a Multiply terms on the left. S - S*r = a Subtract S from both sides. S-S*r - S = a - S Simplify -S*r = a - S Multiply both

I need help with thisone solve: ((x)/(5x+10))+ ((x-3)/(x+2)) = (7)/(5) Let's take that first part: (x)/(5x+10) In the denominator, factor out "5" That leaves that part as: x/(5(x+2)) So now we have: ((x)/5(x+2)) + ((x-3)/(x+2)) =
