3/x = 12

x(3/x) = x * 12

3 = 12x

3/12 = 12x/12

1/4 = x

The answer you're looking for is 1/4 or 0.25 which ever you prefer.

3/x = 12 (You can do the opposite of division by multiplying)

3 = 12x

0.25 = x

Just always remember you can move things to the other side of = as long as it's the opposite! (Addition to subtraction. Multiplication to division)
