Feb 14, 2017

$v = 40$

#### Explanation:

Multiply the numerator/denominator of the fraction on the right side of the equation by 5 to make the fractions equivalent.

$\Rightarrow \frac{8}{4} \times \frac{5}{5} = \frac{40}{20}$

$\text{we now have } \frac{v}{20} = \frac{40}{20}$

$\Rightarrow v = 40 \text{ is the solution}$
