How to solve 7/4 = x/2? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one variable 𝒙.

Steps for finding the solution

We have 7/4 = x/2

Cross multiplying the ratios, gives

7 × 2 = 4x

or, 4x = 7 × 2

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

Therefore, 4x/4 = 7 × 2/4

x = 14/4

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 2, which is the GCF of 14 and 4:

x = 7/2 or, x = 3.5
