x = 6

Step-by-step explanation:

To find x we set up an equation as so:

$$\frac{4.5}{x} =\frac{6}{8}$$

Then we solve by multiplying 4.5 by 8 and 6 by x

$$6x=36$$ Solve for x

$$\frac{6x}{6} =\frac{36}{6}$$ x = 6

To check our answer when we substitute x or 6 we divide to make sure both sides equal the same number

$$\frac{4.5}{6} =\frac{6}{8}$$ when divided both equals 0.75
