If x/2y = 3/4, what is the value of y/x? Cross multiply this proportion: 4x = 3(2y) 4x = 6y Divide each side by x: 4x/x = 6y/x The x's cancel, and we have: 6y/x = 4 Divide each side by 6: 6y/6x = 4/6 The 6's on the left cancel, we have: y/x = 4/6 We can simplify this. Type in Simplify 4/6 into the search engine, and we get 2/3. y/x = 2/3
