n/4 = 5/6

Proportions are solved using cross multiplication.

n/4 = 5/6

When you cross multiply you multiply the numerator of the fraction on one side of the equality by the denominator of the fraction on the other side of the equality.

n*6 = 5*4

6n = 20 (isolate 'n' by dividing by 6 on both sides of the equality)

6n/6 = 20/6

**n = 3.33**(repeating decimal)

**or**you could represent it as

**n = 3 1/3**
