I have an equation, and I want to solve for x.

Here is the equation:

(-ax + c)/b = (-dx + f)/e

If you are able to do this, can you please explain the steps on how to do it. Thank you for your help :)

Ok... so when you multiply that out you get "-eax + ec = -bdx + fb" right? I'm sorry, but I still do not understand what to do. Can you try explaining a little bit more (I am only in 8th grade)?
