given
v=1/2 * 3w
2w=4x/3
3x=5y/4
4y=6z/5
find 5v=7z* U
find U
solve for each given relation we get
U = 5/56

$$\frac{v}{w}=\frac{3}{2}=\frac{15}{10}$$

$$\frac{w}{x}=\frac{2}{3}=\frac{10}{15}$$

$$\frac{x}{y}=\frac{5}{12}=\frac{15}{36}$$

$$\frac{y}{z}=\frac{3}{10}=\frac{36}{120}$$

$$\frac{v}{w} * \frac{w}{x} * \frac{x}{y} * \frac{y}{z}$$ = $$\frac{15}{10} * \frac{10}{15} * \frac{15}{36} * \frac{36}{120 }$$

$$\frac{v}{z} = \frac{15}{120} = \frac{1}{8 }$$

$$\frac{5v}{7z}= \frac{5}{7} * \frac{v}{z}= \frac{5}{56}$$

v = 3w/2
2w = 4x/3
3x = 5y/4
4y = 6z/5
5v = k 7z
k = ?
5v = 15w/2 = 5x = 25y/12 = 25z/40 = 5z/8 = (5/56)7z

The LCD of all the given fractions is 120, so a smart choice for z is 120; thus:

4y = 6 * z/5

4y = 6 * 120 / 5

y = 36

Then:

3x = 9 * 5

x = 15

Then:

2w = 5 * 4

w = 10

Then:

v = 3 * 5 = 15

Thus,

5v/7z = (5 * 15)/(7 * 120) = 15/(7 * 24) = 5/56
