We have 2**x** = 46

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

2 × 6 = 4**x**

or, 4**x** = 2 × 6

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

Therefore, 4**x**4 = 2 × 64

**x** = 124

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

**x** = 31 or, **x** = 3
