In Exercises 5 to 14, find the value of x in each proportion. a) x + 1 x = 10 2 x b) 2 x + 1 x + 1 = 14 3 x − 1

To determine

a) To find:

The value of x in the given proportion.

Explanation

According to Means-Extremes Property, in a proportion, the product of the means equals the product of the extremes.

Calculation:

Consider, x+1x=102x
