Question:

Given that 5x = 7y, find the ratio x : y.

A
7:5

Explaination

The ratio of x : y is equivalent to x divided by y, or $9967_w11_h37.png$. Rearrange the original equation so that only $9967_w11_h37.png$ is on one side of the equal sign.

5x=7y

Dividing both sides by 5 to find: x= (7y/5)

Dividing both sides by y to produce the desired format of $9967_w11_h37.png$:

(x/y)=(7/5)
