**Step-by-step explanation:**

__Step 1: Define__

4/(x + 1) = 3/(x + 2)

__Step 2: Solve for ____x__

- Cross multiply: 4(x + 2) = 3(x + 1)
- Distribute: 4x + 8 = 3x + 3
- Subtract 3x on both sides: x + 8 = 3
- Subtract 8 on both sides: x = -5

**Answer:**

to solve a proportion, you cross multiply. so you take the numerator of the first one, and multiply it by the denominator of the second one. and then the denominator of the first one is multiplied by the numerator of the second one:

4(x+2)=3(x+1) (set them = and then use the distributive property)

4x+8 = 3x+3 (subtract 3x from both sides)

x +8 = 3 (subtract 8 from both sides)

x= -5 (the answer)

Solve for e

-(q – 70) = -28

q =

-(q – 70) = -28

q =

X+2y+3z=5

X+2y+3z=5
