To solve the equation x/2 = 4/7, you can cross-multiply. Multiply the numerator of the first fraction (x) by the denominator of the second fraction (7), and multiply the numerator of the second fraction (4) by the denominator of the first fraction (2). This gives you 7x = 8. To isolate x, divide both sides of the equation by 7. The solution is x = 8/7.
