1. 48/60 = x/300

We now cross-multiply.

60(x) = 48(300)

60x = 14,400

x = 14,400/60

x = 240

So, what is the fraction?

240/300

What does 240/300 really mean? It means that if we were to reduce it to the lowest term, we would end up with 48/60.

Why? Because they are EQUIVALENT fractions.

Done!
