# How do you solve x/200=3?

Jun 11, 2018

$x = 600$

#### Explanation:

Given: $\frac{x}{200} = 3$.

Multiply both sides by $200$.

$\frac{x}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{200}}}} \cdot \textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{200}}} = 3 \cdot 200$

$x = 600$

$x = 600$
Right now, $x$ is being divided by $200$. To isolate it, we want to do the inverse operation- multiplying both sides by $200$. This gives us
$x = 600$
