I will guess that the original equation is as follows:-7yt over 3x = ? over 18xyt

. . . . .

...and that the instructions were something along the lines of "Find the expression which makes the two fractions similar." If so, then:

Find the value by which 3x was multiplied, in order to get 18xyt, and multiply -7yt by the same value.

please show me how i am missing steps each time some were and not working out

What did you get when you divided 18xyt by 3x, to find what 3x had been multiplied by to get 18xty?

What did you get when you multiplied -7yt by this same value?

Please*show* your steps. Once we can *see* what you did, we'll have a better change to help you find where you may have gone wrong.

Thank you!
