    3/x = 12

    x(3/x) = x * 12

    3 = 12x

    3/12 = 12x/12

    1/4 = x

    3/x = 12  (You can do the opposite of division by multiplying)

    3 = 12x

    0.25 = x

    Just always remember you can move things to the other side of = as long as it's the opposite! (Addition to subtraction. Multiplication to division)
