Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

Multiply each side of the equation by #color(red)(50)# to solve for #X# while keeping the equation balanced:

#color(red)(50) * X/50 = color(red)(50) * 100/2#

#cancel(color(red)(50)) * X/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(50))) = 5000/2#

#X = 2500#

There are no extraneous solutions.
