We have 23 = **x**6

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

2 × 6 = 3**x**

or, 3**x** = 2 × 6

Divide both sides by 3, which is the coefficient of **x****Note: ** if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

Therefore, 3**x**3 = 2 × 63

**x** = 123

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 3, which is the GCF of 12 and 3:

**x** = 41 or, **x** = 4
