We have 23 = 4**x**

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

2**x** = 3 × 4

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

Therefore, 2**x**2 = 3 × 42

**x** = 122

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

**x** = 61 or, **x** = 6
