# How do you solve g/16=6/4?

Jun 9, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by $\textcolor{red}{16}$ to solve for $g$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{16} \times \frac{g}{16} = \textcolor{red}{16} \times \frac{6}{4}$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{16}} \times \frac{g}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{16}}}} = \cancel{\textcolor{red}{16}} 4 \times \frac{6}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{4}}}}$

$g = 4 \times 6$

$g = 24$
