Find the Value of x

Find the Value of x Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is about solving for an unknown variable, represented as x, in a series of fraction equations using cross multiplication. Cross multiplication is a method used to solve equations involving two fractions set equal to each other by multiplying the numerator of one fraction by the denominator of the other. The worksheet contains ten problems, each presenting a different equation where x is part of one of the fractions. Students are instructed to find the value of x by applying cross multiplication and solving the resulting equation.

The worksheet is teaching students how to apply cross multiplication to solve for an unknown in fraction equations, a key skill in algebra. Through these exercises, students will learn to isolate the variable and understand the properties of equality and proportionality that govern equations. This method is particularly useful for problems where variables are included in the fractions and simplifies the process of finding the variable’s value. Mastery of this technique will aid students in more complex algebraic manipulations and enhance their problem-solving abilities.
