# How do you solve 3/18=F/6?

Jan 7, 2017

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

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{6}$ to isolate $F$ and keep the equation balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{6} \times \frac{3}{18} = \textcolor{red}{6} \times \frac{F}{6}$

$\frac{18}{18} = \cancel{\textcolor{red}{6}} \times \frac{F}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{6}}}}$

$1 = F$

$F = 1$
