See the step by step solution

## Step 1.  Given

The given proportion is$\frac{x}{5}=\frac{200}{25}.$

## Step 2.  To determine

We have to solve the proportion using equivalent ratios.

## Step 3.  Calculation

Solve the given proportion.

$\begin{array}{c}\frac{x}{5}=\frac{200}{25}\\ \frac{x}{5×5}=\frac{200}{25}\text{}\left[\text{compare denominators}\right]\\ \frac{x×5}{25}=\frac{200}{25}\text{}\left[\text{find}x\right]\\ 5x=200\text{}\\ 5x÷5=200÷5\text{}\left[\text{divide each side by 5}\right]\\ x=40\text{}\end{array}$

So, the solution is $x=40$. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
