What is the missing term in the proportion?

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

6

Explanation

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.

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

15*x* = 9 × 10

15*x* = 90

\(\frac {15x}{15}=\frac{90}{15}\)

*x* = 6
