Steps for finding the solution

We have 3/17 = 12/x

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

3x = 17 × 12

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

Therefore, 3x/3 = 17 × 12/3

x = 204/3

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 3, which is the GCF of 204 and 3:

x = 68/1 or, x = 68
