Answer

a=18

Work Step by Step

In order to solve for x in the equation $\frac{3}{a}$=$\frac{1}{6}$ we will apply the Cross Products Property of a Proportion that says that if $\frac{x}{y}$=$\frac{h}{g}$, where y$\ne$0 and g$\ne$0, then xg=hy. If we set x=3, y=a, h=1, and g=6, then we'll apply this property. (3)(6)=(1)(a) a=18
