Simplifythe equality. Both sides.Then cross multiply.You will then get the right answer
In the above where you have seperated the symplification into three fractions (i.e you could put a line between the fractions and symplify each seperately); Is that the typical first step? As in, take each fraction and try to find a divisor, if there are no divisors look at the whole (as you have done with the '25' for the fraction on the right?). The concept I grasp, it seems to be the analysis of the problem I'm not grasping.
