"Cross multiplying" is synonymous with " clearing denominators" , the process by which one multiplies
an (in)equality by the product, or the least common multiple, of the denominators present.
For instance, suppose that x/y = w/z; then we can multiply both sides by the product of the denominators y and z and we obtain
(yz) (x/y) = ...
