For the following equation, find the value of x: 4x/5 = 5y

In order to solve for x in this equation, you must identify where is x. X is part of a fraction (4x/5), and for these types of questions, we want to eliminate the fraction first. First, we will multiply both sides by 5. It will look like this (5/1) * (4x/5) = 5y * (5/1). Let's look at the first portion, (5/1) * (4x/5) will become 20x/5, which reduces to 4x. The second side will be 25y which results in the equation being 4x=25y. We can simplify this further since we want X not 4x, we divide 4 by bother side as such: (4x)/4 =(25y)/4 which will result in (4x)/4 canceling out to just x and the (25y)/4 becoming 25y/4. As a result x= 25y/4, which is our answer.
