The original equation is [3/4]x = 9
To solve for x, you have to multiply both sides by 4/3
[4/3]*[3/4]x = 9*[4/3]
x = 36/3 = 12
Answer: 4/3

Answer:
The answer is the option C [tex]\frac{4}{3}[/tex]
Stepbystep explanation:
we have
[tex]\frac{3}{4}x=9[/tex]
Solve for x
Multiply by [tex]\frac{4}{3}[/tex] both sides
[tex]\frac{4}{3}*\frac{3}{4}x=9*\frac{4}{3}[/tex]
[tex]x=9*\frac{4}{3}=3*4=12[/tex]
[tex]x=12[/tex]
