Calculate: /(5) 8 = /(x) 32

Expression: $$\frac { 5 } { 8 } = \frac { x } { 32 }$$

Multiply both sides by $32$.

$$\frac{5}{8}\times 32=x$$

Express $\frac{5}{8}\times 32$ as a single fraction.

$$\frac{5\times 32}{8}=x$$

Multiply $5$ and $32$ to get $160$.

$$\frac{160}{8}=x$$

Divide $160$ by $8$ to get $20$.

$$20=x$$

Swap sides so that all variable terms are on the left hand side.

$$x=20$$
