15/5 = 75/m

Enter proportion values below:

 ---------- =<≤>≥ ----------

 15 5
 =
 75 m

Define the proportion formula:

If 2 proportions are equal:
we can cross multiply to get:

 Numerator 1 Denominator 1
 =
 Numerator 2 Denominator 2

Numerator 1 * Denominator 2 = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2

Solving for Denominator 2 we get:

 Denominator 2  = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2 Numerator 1

Evaluate and simplfy

 m  = 5 * 75 15

 m  = 375 15

m = 25
