. . . . .a/(bx) = c/d

...or maybe:

. . . . .(a/b)x = c/d

...or something else? What do you mean by "multiplying a/b to c/d"? If you multiply on both sides by a/b, you'd get something like:

. . . . .(a/b)<sup>2</sup> x = (ac)/(bd)

This wouldn't likely be helpful, if the goal is to isolate x.

Please reply with clarification. Thank you.

Second one you said.. in words x right next to a over bstapel said:

. . . . .a/(bx) = c/d
