What is the missing term in the proportion?

\(\frac {9}{x}=\frac{15}{10}\)


To solve the proportion for x, write a statement with two equal cross products. Then divide both sides of the statement by the number in front of the missing term.
\(\frac {9}{x}=\frac{15}{10}\)
15x = 9 × 10
15x = 90
\(\frac {15x}{15}=\frac{90}{15}\)
x = 6
