So, I've been doing problems on probablity. Stuff like:

12 over 9 = x over 7, solving for x.

But I just got to a question that was this:

2/7 over 3/4 = 5/6 over x

I have NO idea how to even begin. Help? D:

$\displaystyle \frac{\frac{2}{7}}{\frac{3}{4}}=\frac{\frac{5}{6}} {x}$

$\displaystyle \frac{2}{7}x=\frac{15}{24}$

...and I think you can take it from here.(Cool) - Apr 15th 2009, 02:22 PMe^(i*pi)
