[tex]60000x=300000000[/tex]

[tex]\frac{60000x}{60000}=\frac{300000000}{60000}[/tex]

[tex]x=5000[/tex]

To solve this problem, we just need to set an **equation** and find the missing value. 5000 tons of **sand** will produce 3000 barrels of tarry material.

### What is an Equation?

This is a **mathematical expression** used to represent **word problems **and solved arithmetically.

Data;

- 100,000 tons = 60,000 barrels
- x tons = 3,000 barrels

Let's cross multiply both sides and solve for x in this **equation**

[tex]100000= 60,000\\x = 3000\\x = \frac{100000 * 3000}{60000}\\ x = 5000 tons[/tex]

From the calculations above, 5000 tons of **sand** will produce 3000 barrels of tarry material.
