Answer:

Multiply each side of the equation by #6# to isolate #F# and keep the equation balanced

Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by #color(red)(6)# to isolate #F# and keep the equation balanced:

#color(red)(6) xx 3/18 = color(red)(6) xx F/6#

#18/18 = cancel(color(red)(6)) xx F/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(6)))#

#1 = F#

#F = 1#
