Solve the subsequent proportion, Mathematics

Solve the subsequent proportion:

Example:

Solve the subsequent proportion for x.

Solution:

5:x = 4:15

The product of the extremes is (5)(15) = 75.

The product of the means is (x)(4) = 4x.

Equate these two products and solve the resulting equation.

4x = 75

4x/4 = 75/4

X = 18(3/4)
