Let's first get this so there are no fractions. So we need to multiply both sides. I have only 1 question. Is the x in like this: 2/5x=2/7 or 2/5(x)=2/7 I'll solve both. The first one is multiplied by 35x: (35x)2/5x=35x(2/7) This will turn out to be: 14=10x Divide both sides by 10 will give us: x=14/10 or 7/5 2/5(x)=2/7 This we'll multiply by 35 (35)2/5(x)=35(2/7) This will turn out as: 14x=10 Divide both sides by 14 will give us: x=10/14 or 5/7 Hope this helps you out. Let me know. RJ Toftness www.math-unlock.com
