(x-5)/6 = (x-11)/2Found 2 solutions by Nate, checkley75:Answer by Nate(3500)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(x - 5)/6 = (x - 11)/2 mult. each side by the lowest number each one goes into 6(x - 5)/6 = 6(x - 11)/2 x - 5 = 3(x - 11) x - 5 = 3x - 33 28 = 2x 14 = x Answer by checkley75(3666)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(x-5)/6=(x-11)/2 now cross multiply 6(x-11)=2(x-5) 6x-66=2x-10 6x-2x=66-10 4x=56 x=56/4 x=14 answer.
