Cross Multiplication is a way of finding out a missing or simplify a number(s) by using 2 fractions. They are set equal to each other and then you cross multiply.

Example:

because they are similar triangles they can be set equal to each other:
3/5=8/z
3z=40
z=13.3

Let's begin.

Y = 3X + 15

Y = 3 - 3X

3X + 15 = Y = 3 - 3X

3X + 15 = 3 - 3X

6X + 15 = 3

X = -2

Y = 3X + 15

Y = 3(-2) + 15

Y = -6 + 15

Y = 9
