10 = 5
x1
Cross multiply: 10 * 1 = x * 5 Simplifying 10 * 1 = x * 5 Multiply 10 * 1 10 = x * 5 Reorder the terms for easier multiplication: 10 = 5x Solving 10 = 5x Solving for variable 'x'. Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-5x' to each side of the equation. 10 + -5x = 5x + -5x Combine like terms: 5x + -5x = 0 10 + -5x = 0 Add '-10' to each side of the equation. 10 + -10 + -5x = 0 + -10 Combine like terms: 10 + -10 = 0 0 + -5x = 0 + -10 -5x = 0 + -10 Combine like terms: 0 + -10 = -10 -5x = -10 Divide each side by '-5'. x = 2 Simplifying x = 2
