# Find the x Variable

## Worksheet Description

The worksheet is a mathematical exercise designed to help students practice finding the value of an unknown variable, x, in fraction equations using cross multiplication. Each problem involves an equation with one fraction set equal to another, where x is either part of the numerator or the denominator. Students are required to cross multiply to create an equation without fractions that they can then solve for x. The worksheet features ten problems with varying levels of complexity, some involving additional arithmetic operations beyond cross multiplication.

The purpose of this worksheet is to reinforce students’ skills in algebra, specifically in solving equations that involve fractions. By using cross multiplication, students learn how to eliminate the fraction component of an equation, making it easier to isolate and solve for the variable. This skill is essential for higher-level math, where equations become more complex and variables are often embedded within fractions. By completing this worksheet, students enhance their understanding of the principles of algebra and improve their problem-solving strategies in mathematics.
