# How do you solve x/5 = 10?

May 11, 2018

$x = 50$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{x}{5} = 10$

To solve for the variable $\textcolor{b l u e}{x}$, we need to make it by itself.

To do so, we multiply $\textcolor{b l u e}{5}$ to both sides of the equation:
$\frac{x}{5} \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot \quad 5} = 10 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot \quad 5}$

$\frac{x}{\cancel{5}} \cancel{\quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot \quad 5}} = 10 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot \quad 5}$

$x = 50$

Hope this helps!
