See the step by step solution

## Step 1.  Given

The given proportion is $\frac{1}{2}=\frac{x}{50}$.

## Step 2.  To determine

We have to solve the proportion $\frac{1}{2}=\frac{x}{50}$.

## Step 3.  Calculation

Solve the given equation.

$\begin{array}{c}\frac{1}{2}=\frac{x}{50}\\ \frac{1}{2}\cdot 50=\frac{x}{50}\cdot 50\text{}\left[\text{multiply each side by}50\right]\\ \frac{50}{2}=x\text{ }\left[\text{simplify}\right]\\ x=25\text{}\left[\text{divide}\right]\end{array}$

So, the solution is $x=25$. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
