Steps for finding the solution

We have 2/3 = 4/x

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

2x = 3 × 4

Divide both sides by 2, which is the coefficient of x
Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

Therefore, 2x/2 = 3 × 4/2

x = 12/2

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 2, which is the GCF of 12 and 2:

x = 6/1 or, x = 6
