Cross multiplying is a strategy for finding the missing part of a set of equivalent fractions

Cross multiplying is a

strategy for finding

the missing part of a

set of equivalent

fractions.

The letter a is supposed

to represent the number you don’t know yet. It is called a variable.

Cross multiplying is a strategy for finding the missing part of a set of equivalent fractions

Use that brain in your head:

If 10 is 1 times some number,

what is that number?

The letter a is supposed

To represent the number

You don’t know yet. It is called a variable.

Cross multiplying is a

strategy for finding

the missing part of a

set of equivalent

fractions.

Yes. Since 10 = 1 x 10,

the variable a in this

case is 10.
