How do I solve the problem: 3/5 divided by ? = 3/10
I don't get how to solve the equation. I am trying to find what the ? is equal to.
3/5 / x = 3/10. Change the equation to 3/5 / 3/10 = x and solve for x. That would be 3/5 x 10/3 which equals 2.
I find it easier to work with decimals. So, 0.6/x = 0.3/1Cross multiply. 0.6 X 1 = 0.3 times X0.6 = 0.3X (0.3 times X). Isolate X by dividing both sides by 0.30.6/0.3 = X2=X.So, the answer is 2.
