5. Thanks.

19/38 = x/60

Cross multiply means to multiply the first and last terms together. Then multiply the middle terms together.

1140 = 38x

Use simple algebra to find the value of x. The equation means what unknown number when multiplied by 38 equals 1140?

1140 divided by 38 = 30

If you're still confused, please study the proportions part of this site carefully.
