    Answer:

    x=6.25

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Cross multiply

    5/12=x/15

    12*x=15*5

    12x=75

    Divide both sides by 12 to isolate the variable x

    x=6.25

    Or, multiply both sides by 15 to “reverse” the division being done to x

    5/12=x/15

    15*5/12=x/15*15

    6.25=x

    Answer: 6.25.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let’s put your question into a proper proportional form, because it is a ratio that is equal.

    [tex]\frac{5}{12} = \frac{x}{15}[/tex]

    To solve proportions, you have to cross-multiply in the direction that has numbers, which is 5 and 15, then divide to 12.

    [tex]5 * 15 / 12 = 6.25[/tex]

    The answer you should get by doing this is 6.25.
