Answer:

#x = 50#

Explanation:

#x/5 = 10#

To solve for the variable #color(blue)x#, we need to make it by itself.

To do so, we multiply #color(blue)5# to both sides of the equation:
#x/5 quadcolor(blue)(*quad5) = 10 quadcolor(blue)(*quad5)#

#x/cancel(5) cancel(quadcolor(blue)(*quad5)) = 10 quadcolor(blue)(*quad5)#

#x = 50#

Hope this helps!
