To solve the equation 2/5x = 3 by clearing the fractions, you can multiply both sides of the equation by the denominator of the fraction, which is 5. This will eliminate the fraction. So, 5 * (2/5x) = 5 * 3. After multiplying, you get 2x = 15. Finally, divide both sides by 2 to isolate x. Therefore, x = 15/2 or x = 7.5.
