Calculation:
The given ratios can be simplified further by doing cross product:
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{10}}}{{{15}}}}={\frac{{{4}}}{{{x}-{5}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{10}{\left({x}-{5}\right)}={4}{\left({15}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle{10}{x}-{50}={60}\)
\(\displaystyle{10}{x}={60}+{50}\)
\(\displaystyle{10}{x}={110}\)
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{10}{x}}}{{{10}}}}={\frac{{{110}}}{{{10}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{x}={11}\)
