Steps for finding the solution

We have 2/x = 4/6

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

2 × 6 = 4x

or, 4x = 2 × 6

Divide both sides by 4, which is the coefficient of x
Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

Therefore, 4x/4 = 2 × 6/4

x = 12/4

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 4, which is the GCF of 12 and 4:

x = 3/1 or, x = 3
