2v(5)=3vx
 
At first glance, you might be unsure of what you're solving for in this equation, since there are 2 variables. Do you notice any similarities between the left and right sides?
 
Both sides have a v, which means this variable will cancel out and disappear from your equation.
2(5)=3x
 
Now you know you are solving for x. Let's swap sides because I like keeping the variable on the left.
3x = 2(5)
 
Now isolate the variable by dividing both sides by 3.
x = (2*5)/3
 
x = 10/3 (or you can write it as a decimal or mixed number)
 
Hope this helps!
