# How do you solve v/12=10/2?

Oct 8, 2017

$v = 60$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{v}{12} = \frac{10}{2}$
Let's start by doing cross-multiply
$\left(v\right) \left(2\right) = \left(10\right) \left(12\right)$
$2 v = 120$
Divide both sides by $\textcolor{red}{2}$ to find the value for $v$
$\frac{\cancel{2 v}}{\cancel{\textcolor{red}{2}}} = \frac{120}{\textcolor{red}{2}}$
$v = 60$
