I think the answer is 2 because when you divide it by 6 it equals to = 0.333333333and when you divide 2.5 to 7.5 the answer is also 0.333333333it's the same.yeah (:
My answer is the same as Trish's. I also got the same answer which is 2, because as you see in example number 1, if you used cross-multiplication, the answer were equal which is 20=20 but in the problem, it's 15=15.If you use cross-multiplication:2 x 7.5 = 156 x 2.5 = 1515 = 15If you divide the numerator to the denominator:2 / 6 = 0.33333333.....2.5 / 7.5 = 0.33333333.....0.333... = 0.333...If you divide numerator to numerator and denominator to denominator:2 / 2.5 = 0.86 / 7.5 = 0.80.8 = 0.8The fractions 2/6 and 2.5/7.5 is an equivalent fraction.

I think the answer is 2.Here is how I got the answer:x/6 = 2.5/7.57.5/6= 1.252.5/1.25= 22/6 = 2.5/7.5To make sure my answer was right I used multiplication:2x1.25= 2.56x1.25= 7.52/6 = 2.5/7.5
