What is Cross Multiplication?
Cross multiplication is a process involving two fractions where in three values are known and one value in unknown. We multiply the numerator of one fraction to the denominator of the other fraction. In this way, the unknown value is found.
Find the value of 'x' using the cross multiplication method.
7/x = 14/18
Using cross-multiplication, we get:
7 × 18 = x × 14
126 = 14x
x = 126/14
x = 9
Therefore, the value of x is 9.
Now, use the calculator and find the unknown value in the following fractions:
- 2/3 and x/6
- 7/9 and x/18
