Multiply both sides by hint1Multiplier

\color{red}{ hint1Multiplier \times } \dfrac{numerator1}{denominator1} = \dfrac{numerator2}{denominator2} \color{red}{ \times hint1Multiplier }

hint1Product1 = hint1Product2

Multiply both sides by hint2Multiplier

\color{red}{ hint2Multiplier \times } hint1Product1 = hint1Product2 \color{red}{ \times hint2Multiplier }

hint2Product1 = hint2Product2

x is

= \dfrac{solutionNumerator}{solutionDenominator}.

Solve for x.

\dfrac{numerator1}{denominator1} = \dfrac{numerator2}{denominator2}

x = solutionNumerator / solutionDenominator
