As always, ask what you need to do to get x by itself.
$\frac{x}{2} = \frac{7}{8}$

$2 \cdot \frac{x}{2} = 2 \cdot \frac{7}{8}$

$x = \frac{2 \cdot 7}{8} = \frac{7}{4}$

$\frac{2}{3} = \frac{3}{x}$

$x \cdot \frac{2}{3} = x \cdot \frac{3}{x}$

$\frac{2x}{3} = 3$

$\frac{3}{2} \cdot \frac{2x}{3} = \frac{3}{2} \cdot 3$

$x = \frac{9}{2}$

$\frac{2}{9}x = 7$

$\frac{9}{2} \cdot \frac{2}{9}x = \frac{9}{2} \cdot 7$

$x = \frac{63}{2}$
