GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 4 6. 1 x – 3 4 3x3x = SOLUTION Write original proportion. Cross Products Property Multiply. Subtract 4x from each side. 1 x – 3 4 3x3x = 3x3x4(x – 3)= 3x3x4x – 12= 3x – 4x – 12= – x = – 12 x = 12

5
GUIDED PRACTICE for Example 4 7. y – 3 7 y 14 = SOLUTION Write original proportion. Cross Products Property Multiply. Subtract 7y from each side and add 42 to each side. 14y – 427y7y= 14y – 7y 42= y = 6 y – 3 7 y 14 = = 14(y – 3) 7 y Subtract, then divide
