The answer is: " 2 ". _________________________ Given: 6:1 = 12:x ; solve for "x" ; 6/1 = 12/x ; 6x =12*1 ; 6x = 12 ; Divide each side of the equation by "6" ; to isolate "x" on one side of the equation; and to solve for "x" ; 6x / 6 = 12 / 6 ; to get: x = 2 . _________________________________________
