$g = 6$

Refer to the explanation for the process.

#### Explanation:

Solve:

$\frac{\textcolor{b l u e}{9}}{\textcolor{b l u e}{g}} = \frac{\textcolor{red}{15}}{\textcolor{red}{10}}$

Cross multiply each denominator by the opposite numerator.

$\textcolor{b l u e}{9} \times \textcolor{red}{10} = \textcolor{red}{15} \times \textcolor{b l u e}{g}$

Simplify.

$90 = 15 g$

Divide both sides by $15$

$\frac{90}{15} = g$

Simplify.

$6 = g$

Switch sides.

$g = 6$
