1x/1y = 2y/1z how would you solve for x/z is it 1x/1y * 2y = 2x/z or 1x/1y/2y = 0.5 x/z

x/y = 2y/z

Multiply both sides by y:

y(x/y) = y(2y/z)

x = 2y

Multiply both sides by y:

y(x/y) = y(2y/z)

x = 2y

^{2}/zMultiply both sides by 1/z (or divide both sides by z):

(1/z) x = (1/z)(2y

^{2}/z)x/z = 2y

or

x/z = 2(y/z)

^{2}/z^{2}or

x/z = 2(y/z)
