\(\frac{1}{4} x= \frac{3}{5}\)

can also be written as:
\(\frac{x}{4} = \frac{3}{5}\)

cross multiply

\(5x = 12\)

\(x = \frac{12}{5}\)

1.Combine multiplied terms into a single fraction

1/4*x=3/5

 

2.Multiply by 1

1x/4=3/5

x/4=3/5

 

3.Multiply all terms by the same value to eliminate fraction denominators

x/4=3/5

4*x/4=4*3/5

 

4.Cancel multiplied terms that are in the denominator

4*x/4=4*3/5

x=4* 3/5


5.Multiply the numbers

x=4*3/5

x=12/5

 

 

 

Sorry if incorrect
