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 .  _________________________________________
