# How do you solve the proportion 5/9=x/63?

Apr 29, 2015

we are given:
$\frac{5}{9}$ $=$ $\frac{x}{63}$

Here, $x$ is the unknown

Leaving $x$ at the R.H.S
We shift 63 to the L.H.S (numerator)

so now we get:
$\frac{5}{9}$ x 63 $=$ $x$
on solving:

$x$ $=$ 35

So our proportion is :
$\frac{5}{9}$ $=$ $\frac{35}{63}$
note: on solving the fractions we get the equal value of 0.55 on both the sides
L.H.S = R.H.S hence they are in proportion.
