# What is the value of x in the proportion (x-1)/5 = (4x+2)/35?

Proportion means equality of two ratios.

## Answer: The value of x is 3.

We will solve the equation (x-1)/5 = (4x+2)/35 to find the value of x.

## Explanation

(x-1)/5 = (4x+2)/35

On multiplying 5 both sides, we get

(x-1) = (4x+2)/7

7(x-1) = (4x+2)

7x -7 = 4x +2

7x – 4x = 2 + 7

3x = 9

x = 9/3 = 3

### Hence, the value of x is 3.
