We have 624 = **x**100

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

6 × 100 = 24**x**

or, 24**x** = 6 × 100

Divide both sides by 24, which is the coefficient of **x****Note: ** if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

Therefore, 24**x**24 = 6 × 10024

**x** = 60024

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 24, which is the GCF of 600 and 24:

**x** = 251 or, **x** = 25
