# Given x/29=8.610, how do you solve for x?

May 4, 2016

$\frac{x}{29} = 8.610$

$\frac{x}{\cancel{29}} = 29 \times 8.610$

$x = 249.69$

#### Explanation:

To cancel out the $\frac{x}{29}$, times both sides by $29$.

This would give:

$\frac{x}{\cancel{29}} = 29 \times 8.610$

$29 \times 8.610 = 249.69$

SO

$x = 249.69$

Hope this helped!
