1. ## solve for x

solve for $x$

$
15xy-8x^2=0
$

2. One solution is x = 0. The other depends on y.

3. There will be two solutions for x:

$15xy-8x^2=0$

$x(15y-8x)=0$

$x=0$ or $15y-8x=0$

$15y=8x$

$x=\frac{15y}{8}$ or $x=0$

Factor...

$x(15y-8x)=0$

$x=0$

$15y=8x\Rightarrow\ \frac{x}{y}=\frac{15}{8}$

Hence, x=0 or x:y=15:8
