Answer:

#n=12#

Explanation:

Hey!

So let's start out by looking at the equation:

#16/48=n/36#

If we were to multiply the numerator of the right side with the denominator of the right side, and the denominator of the right side with the numerator of the left side (cross multiplication) we would get:

#16*36=48n#

Then we can isolate for #n#

#576=48n#

#576/48=n#

#12=n#

Good luck!
