Well, if we had the value of x...

EDIT: Anyway, without x, it would look like:

5/3

1/2

Simplifying 5/3, we get 1 2/3, so it now looks like:

1 2/3

1/2

Think you can do it from there?

Oh, yea... sorry asus...

Anyway...

1 2/3's into 1/2... x/12 where x = numerator?

Or maybe even x/6 where x = numerator?
